Dorothy House Hospice Care Asks the Community to #Giveashift

Dorothy House Hospice care, a leading voice in palliative and end of life care in our region, is excited to announce the launch of its #GiveAShift Volunteer Recruitment Campaign in Wiltshire & Bath.

This new initiative aims to rally the community to contribute their time and skills to making a positive impact in the lives of others, whilst also offering individuals the opportunity to meet new people and develop new skills.

With the belief that every act of giving counts, #GiveAShift invites people from all walks of life to participate, whether they can spare an hour, a day, a week, or a month. This flexible approach recognises that everyone’s time and lived experience are valuable resources that can make a significant difference in the community.

Rowena Midgley, Head of Retail for Dorothy House said:  “Volunteers are the backbone of our organisation, and their contributions are essential to our mission of ensuring that everyone has access to outstanding palliative and end of life care in our community.”

There are countless ways for volunteers to get involved through the #GiveAShift campaign. Opportunities range from till operators, customer service and back of house roles.   “Our goal is to make volunteering accessible to everyone. We understand that people lead busy lives, and it’s not always easy to commit to long-term engagements. With #GiveAShift, we hope to inspire individuals to take that first step, give what they can, and experience the joy of making a positive impact on the lives of others.”

She continued:“Whether you are a student, a professional, a retiree, or someone simply looking to make a difference, there is a place for you in our volunteer community. Together, we can create a stronger, more vibrant Wiltshire that benefits us all.”
