Support us with your valuable skills and time

At the heart of hospice care

Saint Michael's was founded by a small, dedicated group of volunteers and, 30 years later, they remain at the heart of almost everything we do.

We have plenty of interesting and rewarding volunteering opportunities available. So, if you can offer a few hours a week to help us, we'd love to hear from you.

There are lots of ways to support

Find the right role to fit your skills and the time you can offer. Here are some of the key roles we're currently looking for support with:

Be part of our retail team

Help us create a safe and welcoming environment in our community stores. We currently have a particular need at Saint Michael’s stores in Knaresborough, Starbeck, Station Parade, Ripon and Leeds Road, Harrogate.

Volunteer receptionists

An exciting opportunity to join our team of volunteers who support the reception staff based at Crimple House - the first point of contact for anybody arriving at the Hospice.
Key responsibilities will include answering and directing telephone enquiries, greeting patients, patient visitors and staff ensuring they are warmly welcomed at all times and undertaking a variety of administration tasks using Word and Excel.

Volunteer Complementary Therapist

This is an exciting time for Saint Michael's as we launch a new Complementary Therapy service for all our patients and their main carers. We are seeking to recruit volunteer complementary therapists with experience of working with seriously unwell patients, and who are able to offer any or all of the following treatments: aromatherapy, massage, reflexology, reiki and hypnotherapy. We aim to be able to deliver treatments to patients in the hospice in-patient unit, for out-patients and in the patients’ own homes.

Did you know we have more than 600 volunteers? They are involved in almost every aspect of our work so we can't do what we do, without YOU.

What we do really helps

"I get so much out of volunteering at the Starbeck shop. I love meeting people, taking to customers and the other volunteers. It's great knowing that what we do really helps other people."
