Volunteering

Volunteers are the backbone of the hospice and we would not function without you. Join our family of more than 450 people, who work across every area.

Your commitment can take up as little or as much time as you wish. Volunteers must be aged 16 or over and for posts based onsite, a DBS check is required.

There are many more roles, in all departments. Please phone the HR team on 01472 350908 or email sahhrteam@nhs.net to find out more about the opportunities we offer.

Database Administration Volunteer

Do you like working with data?

Our long serving Database Volunteer has retired and we are looking for someone to fill their shoes. 

The days and time would be completely up to you but would need to be at least 7.5 hours a week which  can be split over two days if needed.  Of course, we would love it if you could spare more time as there is always plenty of work to do with the database in our busy Fundraising office. 

This is an important volunteer role and attention to detail is a must. There are set tasks to do each week on our database system but full training will be given.

All onsite volunteer must complete an enhanced DBS check. 

Please contact Hilary on 01472 571269 for further information or email hilary.newell@nhs.net.

 

Collection Box Volunteers
I’ve always wanted to volunteer but…I don’t have set times, I cannot commit every week, I don’t know when I will be free!”

 Well – you are just the kind of person we need. 

 You can help us any time, any place, anywhere by picking up and replacing the collection boxes that are in local shops, clubs and pubs and bringing the full ones back to the Hospice if you are in the Grimsby/Cleethorpes area. If you are further afield  for example Immingham, Louth, Hull, Sutton on Sea, Sleaford, Barton, Gainsborough or Market Rasen; they can be taken to one of our local shops.

Full guidance will be given including the organisations you will be covering during induction.
