Making friends in the Tring area

Volunteering is a wonderful way of meeting new friends, using old skills – and learning new ones. The Dacorum Volunteer Centre has details of some Tring volunteering vacancies on https://www.volunteerdacorum.org/

The Hospice of St Francis has over 1,200 volunteers, but always needs more – see below.

At the Hospice of St Francis, we can help you if you are managing, or recovering from, serious illness. We help you to live your life well by improving symptoms, working with you to achieve personal goals - helping you to feel safe - and anything from getting back to work, enjoying family time to walking the dogs again.

Our care takes many forms and our professional team plus dedicated, trained volunteers care for people with a wide range of illnesses including cancer, motor neurone disease, dementia, heart disease, lung disease and neurological illness.

We can help you in your own home or here at the Hospice through 1:1 appointments or group sessions (anything from physio to nursing support and mindfulness to complementary therapy) in our Spring Centre or through 24-7 care in our beds.

Our team of volunteers is integral to making #YourPreciousLife truth for all who come into contact with The Hospice of St Francis, providing a place to belong. They are a hand in the darkness, and have become people to rely upon; helping to support fundraising, providing a warm embrace, highlighting our work in the community and keeping everything running smoothly. Our volunteers ensure that the community knows 'every life is precious.'

If you would like to support the Hospice by volunteering, we would love to hear from you!
