Join our Volunteer Open Evening

John Taylor Hospice is holding an open evening for people interested in becoming volunteers.

The event at the hospice in Erdington on 19 September will give people the chance to meet current volunteers, discover the different options available and chat to the various teams.

Head of Volunteering Mark Jones said: “We are frequently asked about volunteering opportunities and this evening will give people the chance to find out all they would like to know in one place.

“Our volunteers are an essential part of our team. Helping in the hospice, in shops, in fundraising and with services like driving and wellbeing, they make an enormous contribution to our hospice.

“People volunteer for a range of different reasons – to meet new people, to get out of the house, to build new skills and to give something back. And they enjoy it – in our most recent survey of our volunteers 100% said they would recommend volunteering for John Taylor Hospice.

“Now we are looking forward to meeting lots of new potential volunteers at our open evening – and to welcoming them to the hospice.”

Our Volunteer Open Evening takes place at John Taylor Hospice, 76 Grange Road, Erdington B24 0DF on Thursday 19 September and is a drop-in between 6-8pm. All are welcome and places don’t need to be booked.

What our patients think

“The care was second to none”

“At such a heartbreaking and difficult time, the nurses and care assistants knew exactly what to do and to say – we’d have been lost without them. The care they provided for my beautiful wife was second to none and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Roger Perks

“Nothing is too much trouble”

“I can’t thank hospice teams enough. From fitting grab rails in my house and ordering a reclining bed, reviewing of all my medication, providing me with new medical equipment and even helping to organise domestic help for us at home – they’ve covered everything but are always willing to do even more.”

Jackie Bannister

“I don’t know where I’d be without them”

“The support I get is truly is invaluable and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I’m able to talk openly about my illness and ask for advice and support if I need it. I’ve made some incredible friends and the hospice is a very special place full of laughter and kindness. “
