Volunteer Retail Assistants – Barnard Castle.

Location: Barnard Castle, Star Buildings, Star Yard, Barnard Castle DL12 8LY

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.

Do you have some spare time – then why not volunteer with 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.

We have several roles available, including:  :
