Rush of Recruiting Volunteers

Home About Us News Rush of Recruiting Volunteers
Our Information Session in October for those interested in volunteering at North Road (Kitchen, Reception, Cleaning) was a fantastic success with 25 people attending, and most of them signing up to volunteer.

However, many people these days are only interested in volunteering for one shift a month - so whilst the numbers are going up we still may have a few shifts that we cannot fill.  

My hope is that within six months we are at full volunteer capacity! 

Thanks to the North East Valley Bowling Club for hosting us for this session.

Our process for recruiting and inducting volunteers is very thorough, I  have stepped you through the process below.

Step one: Information session

1.5 hour session includes learning about:

  • the Hospice 
  • the role available
  • the commitment we require
  • their own motivations for volunteering.

Step two: Training day (10am-3pm on a Saturday)

  • More about Hospice
  • More about the Role
  • Policies relevant to volunteers
  • Boundaries and self care

Step three: Orientation Sessions with experienced volunteers

Step four: Rostered on!
