Volunteer with your colleagues at Highland Hospice

Supporting Highland Hospice isn’t just about making a financial commitment

The time, passion, enthusiasm and expertise of you and your staff can be just as valuable to us. Volunteering is a great way to get to know more about your colleagues away from your place of work, as well as a fantastic opportunity for team building, developing leadership skills and problem solving whilst all working towards the same goal.

Befriending Support

Most people are aware of the excellent clinical and person care delivered by Highland Hospice but may be less aware that many of our more recent services provide social support tailored to meet the needs of individuals within their local communities. The Helping Hands befriending service is part of our growing community support which offers social and practical support to adults, their families or carers. Support is delivered by our volunteer befrienders and is aimed at making life meaningful and fulfilling as well as reducing isolation and loneliness. The range of activities and experiences for both the befriender and the befriendee is vast as each person’s situation is unique. Volunteers who current deliver support feedback that they are delighted how support can fit in with their life commitments and are often overwhelmed by how much they gain from supporting others.

To date we have recruited volunteer befrienders through a range of promotional activities however we would like to explore the opportunities of working in partnership with organisations who would like to give their staff the opportunity of offering volunteer hours to help support people in their local community. Our community engagement manager would be delighted to chat though potential models of support delivery as well as outlining how current support is delivered within Inverness/East Rosshire as well as within our ten partnership areas.
