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.
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:
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.
Every £1 makes a difference to our care and this flexible role, suitable for a driver, means we can make the most of opportunities to have collection boxes out in our community, at shops, pubs and businesses. You'll receive training and support.
This vital team helps create a welcoming and tranquil environment for patients, families and visitors, using their gardening skills to enhance and improve our beautiful grounds.
Meals are an important part of the day at our hospice - help our catering team by delivering evening meals and beverages to our patients at the hospice, between 4-6pm.
A varied part time role ideal for someone seeking some catering work experience. You'll be supporting our amazing catering team, by helping prepare ingredients for the tasty nutritious food we serve our hospice patients, keeping an eye on stock levels and receiving deliveries.
We're looking for caring people to apply as a volunteer bereavement support worker, offering specialist support for children and young people with our Just 'B' Team. Once your training has been completed, you'll offer around 4 hours a week to this rewarding role.
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.
It's quick and easy to let us know you're interested in supporting Saint Michael's by joining our team
"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."
