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.
