Patients, Families and carers


Volunteers contribute to every aspect of the hospice by sorting donated goods to sell in our shops, greeting visitors in our reception, providing care for service users, maintaining our sites and gardens and helping in our offices.

Our volunteers are essential to the work of the hospice.

Volunteers are quite simply, the lifeblood of Dove House Hospice and we wouldn’t be able to operate without their continued support.

With over fifty roles available, we have a wide range of volunteer opportunities that you can choose from. Whatever capacity you volunteer in, your help will allow us to continue to deliver our services to people with life-limiting illnesses and support families in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Anyone can volunteer. It doesn’t matter what your skills, experience or background are, or how much time you have to give. Volunteering can be great not only for you, but for your community.
