When you volunteer, you give a priceless gift to those who are affected by end-of-life challenges and you make an extraordinary difference.​


As a hospice volunteer, your dedication and kindness enables us to provide support, throughout Huron Perth and Area, to palliative clients and their families. In order to serve and reflect the many cultures and groups residing in our community, our hospice welcomes volunteer applicants who reflect the wide diversity of our citizens.


Due to the sensitive nature of our service, you will be required to participate in a thorough screening process which includes an interview, reference check, vulnerable sector police record check and health screening. Once successfully completed, you will participate in a 30-hour comprehensive training and orientation program to ensure you have the knowledge required to provide outstanding care to the residents in our hospice and/or the clients we serve in the community. 


Whether you want to help others, meet new people or develop new skills – volunteering can enrich your life. With both short and long-term volunteer opportunities, you will have a mutually agreed-upon role that matches your interests, skills, and availability with the needs of the hospice.

For a challenging, rewarding and meaningful volunteer opportunity, please download and submit the Volunteer Application Form.
