Volunteer

Our volunteers are helping us make every moment matter for the people we care for, their families and their friends.

Volunteers are a vital part of our team. From welcoming visitors in reception to working behind the scenes maintaining our gardens, their contribution is invaluable.

We regularly add volunteering opportunities to our website. Take a look below – you may find the perfect role for you.

If you would like to find out more about volunteering for John Taylor Hospice then please contact our Volunteer Resource Co-ordinator Paddy Breen on 0121 728 6738 or email [email protected]

Our first shops in Erdington, Wylde Green and Castle Bromwich Shopping Centre have all been hugely successful and our next shop in Brownhills is due to open on 15 February.

As a driver’s mate you’ll help us keep these shops freshly stocked and ensure that donated items can be collected and distributed efficiently. Every donation matters and directly helps us raise funds to provide essential care for patients and their friends and family.

You will have access to one of our hospice vehicles to move stock and collect donations. You will be required to manually handle items that you are collecting and will be assisted by a driver to help handle and store donations.

If you are interested in volunteering then we will send you an application form to complete. We are obliged to ensure all our volunteers are DBS checked (Disclosure and Barring Service – formerly CRB) prior to commencement.

For more information please contact our Volunteer Resource Co-ordinator Paddy Breen on 0121 728 6738 or email [email protected]

 

Many of our day hospice visitors depend upon transport to reach us. By joining us as a volunteer driver you’ll be supporting patients to access the care and support they need.

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who could spend up to an hour and a half in the morning and the same in the afternoon, one day a week, picking up patients and taking them back home again.

We have a limited number of hospice vehicles so we are particularly interested in hearing from volunteers who could potentially use their own vehicle. A fuel mileage allowance will be paid. If you can’t use your own vehicle, please don’t let this deter you from volunteering – we’d still love to hear from you!

If you are interested in volunteering, or would like to know more about the role, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Paddy Breen, on 0121 728 6738 or email [email protected]

Volunteer driver's mates at John Taylor Hospice

We are looking to recruit a team of committed retail volunteers who will support our shop managers to raise valuable funds for John Taylor Hospice.

We currently have shops in Erdington, Wylde Green and Castle Bromwich with our fourth site due to open in Brownhills on 15 February.

As a retail volunteer you will support the shop managers by selling our range of stock, selecting and preparing goods for sale and creating a brilliant customer service experience.

You will have the opportunity to meet new people and make friends plus the chance to develop new skills or put your existing set of skills into practice. Retail/charity retail experience is great but is by no means essential.

Volunteers add an invaluable dimension to the work of John Taylor Hospice – we need you to help us achieve more.
