Assistant Retail Volunteer flexible-working
At Julia’s House Children’s Hospice we have a variety of volunteering opportunities that are very flexible to suit you. Whether you are looking to volunteer for a couple of hours a week, a month, or a year then we would love to hear from you.
We have a variety of shops across Dorset and Wiltshire that we are looking to recruit volunteers to help support them.
In Dorset, we have shops in Bransgore, Broadstone, Christchurch, Dorchester, Poole, Weymouth, Wallisdown, Wimborne, Shaftesbury and in Wiltshire; Devizes and Salisbury.
Most of the locations have good bus links, and we do reimbursed reasonable travel expenses for our volunteers.
Julia’s House Children’s Hospice is a lifeline for families facing a desperate reality – that their child may not live into adulthood. Our nurses and carers help families make the most of the time they have together, providing practical and emotional support through frequent, short breaks for mums and dads and social opportunities for the whole family.
Julia’s House can’t change the outcome for these families, but we can make a real difference to the quality of their lives. We don’t just value our families at Julia’s House, we value our staff and volunteers, too. When you volunteer for Julia’s House you become part of our team and covered by our employee “CHILD” values.
