Arts and Crafts session leader – Stockton

Location: Butterwick Hospice - Middlefield Road, Stockton, TS19 8XN

For 40 years, Butterwick Hospice has supported local people and communities across our regions of Teesside and County Durham. We provide holistic care for children and adults living with a life-limiting illness, as well as support for their families and loved ones. We believe in embracing life’s journey with compassion and care and aim to make every day the best it can be for each of our patients and their loved ones.

So, if you have some spare time – why not volunteer to help us and do something amazing?  

Everyone has their own reasons for volunteering, often it is due to having some personal contact or experience with the hospice and a wish to give something back to us , but for others it can be to provide :

  • A sense of achievement and purpose
  • A feeling part of a community
  • Improved self-esteem and confidence
  • A sharing of talents, learning new skills, and creating a better work-life balance
  • Combatting stress, loneliness, social isolation, and depression
  • Meeting new people, which can help you feel more connected and valued
  • Finding your purpose and sense of community

Give it try – join our team – without the support of our wonderful volunteers, we couldn’t provide our services to the local community.
