North Devon Hospice Group and Specialist Volunteers' Open Day

We are looking to recruit new group and specialist volunteers to join our team. 

Whether that is for a regular commitment each week, or as a stand alone workshop, or perhaps a number of sessions over a year. 

In order to find out what amazing skills, talents and specialisms are available in North Devon, our Supportive Care team are hosting an Open Day on Wednesday 17th July for potential volunteers to come and meet some of the team, gain a better understanding of how we support our patients and their families at the hospice, and for the therapists to let us know how they feel they could support our work.
