Volunteering & Fundraising

Great Oaks is fortunate in having a large number of volunteers who support the hospice in a variety of ways. Without volunteers, this hospice would not be able to provide the breadth and range of services needed by people in the Forest of Dean.

Volunteer Roles:

  • Board of Directors: who bring a wealth of expertise and commitment to the hospice
  • Raising funds by working in one of our shops or taking part in other fundraising activities
  • Supporting the staff in their professional role including:
  • Hospitality
  • Diversional therapy
  • Transport for people attending day hospice
  • Outreach support (befriending, shopping etc)
  • Ambassadors
  • Gardening/maintenance
  • Administration
  • Supporting staff and volunteers through complementary therapy

Opportunities for Volunteers vary at any given time, for

provide Great Oaks with the funding to continue to
provide our services.
