Train as a volunteer and support local families facing life-threatening illness.

 

One of our Volunteers says.....

“We are in the unique position of being neither a family member nor a friend, and very often that can make us a useful sounding board to vent the strong emotions and worries which life-threatening illness can bring.
The training course which I attended when I first joined The Trust, together with on-going workshops and supervision, has made me feel that I am part of a friendly and hugely supportive team and I really enjoy my role as a volunteer. It is a great privilege to be invited into someone’s home at a time which can be so emotionally and physically challenging and it can be a fulfilling and often humbling experience. And the feedback we get from our clients endorses the fact that we really do make a difference.”
