Compassionate care volunteers

University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust is working in partnership with end of life charity the Anne Robson Trust to recruit and train a team of dedicated compassionate care volunteers to support patients who are approaching end of life.

Working as part of the End of Life and Bereavement service, this unique volunteering opportunity will enable you to support patients who may have no visitors at all, as well as providing a listening ear to family and friends facing the death of a loved one. You could make cups of tea or sit quietly with the patient.

We are looking for people who can be compassionate and kind even in the most challenging circumstances. You will need to be emotionally resilient and able to remain composed in highly sensitive circumstances.

Volunteers are asked to commit to one shift a week, mornings or afternoons, Monday to Friday, and will be based on the Good Hope Hospital site.

If you would like to register your interest in becoming a compassionate care volunteer, please contact the Project Coordinator, Denise Nally.

You will then be invited to one of our information sessions.
