Company Support through Technical or Specialist Skills and Qualifications

Become a Hospice Hero!

We have a range of roles which require specialised technical skills or qualifications. We are looking for companies that are prepared to offer continued volunteering support in these areas.  This could be through a monthly allocation of hours or on an as needed basis.  Get in touch for more details.

We are particularly interested in talking to businesses or specialists in the following areas:

  • Electricians, plumbers, builders and mechanics
  • Hairdressers and beauty therapists
  • Podiatrists
  • Massage therapists (both therapeutic and relaxation) and physiotherapists
  • Gardening, arborists, ground maintenance
  • Removal companies or companies with labour forces for general activities


Why company volunteering makes sense.

Companies engaged in promoting volunteering see a low cost, high impact result from their experiences.
