Volunteer for us

Volunteers are an essential part of the team at St Margaret’s Hospice and thanks to their generosity of time, energy and skills, we can care for 4,900 people across Somerset, every year. Our volunteers have chosen to give us their time for many different reasons. For some it’s a chance to give something back and for others it’s a way of enhancing their CV. If you are looking for a voluntary role in Somerset, no matter how much time you have to commit, St Margaret’s needs you!

Here are just some of the reasons our volunteers dedicate their time to us:

“I just wanted to make a difference to my community”

“I’ve met such wonderful people”

“It gets me out of the house”

“While I’m looking for work it’s really helped gain some confidence and self-esteem”
