End of Life Care Volunteering

This group has been formed to support trusts, health boards and charities where volunteers play an integral part in supporting and enhancing the holistic care that people experience at the end of life. Marie Curie and Helpforce are working together to increase the number of volunteers supporting patients approaching the end of life in hospitals and communities across the UK. The partnership is supporting NHS organisations across the UK to develop their own end of life volunteering services.

The group is for anyone with an interest in End of Life Care volunteering, whether you already manage an End of Life Care service or would like to work with us to adopt a similar model in your own organisation.

This is a public group which means that the resources can be accessed by anyone and the discussion topics are visible. The content of the discussions and member profiles can only be accessed by group members.
