Volunteer with Hospice

Home Support Us Volunteer with Hospice

Much of Otago Community Hospice’s services are fuelled by our 350 rich army of volunteers, contributing an incredible $500,000 plus of value to our Hospice service, from shop assistants to gardeners and receptionists to Kitchen helpers.

Otago Community Hospice relies upon its volunteers, and therefore we pride ourselves on our professional practices when it comes to valuing our volunteers. We want our volunteers to have valuable and rewarding experiences with us. We ensure our volunteers are effectively inducted into their volunteer roles with the Hospice, and ensure we stay in touch with all 350 volunteers, with regular touch-points like our annual Christmas dinner and mid-winter social events. We have paid dedicated staff to promote, evaluate and provide ongoing support, training and education for the volunteers.
