Starting out

If you are considering the development of a community volunteering programme or are in the early planning stages there are a number of areas you may wish to consider.

Starting out
These include:
  • What do you want to achieve through community volunteering?
  • What support already exists in the local community?
  • What are the palliative and end of life care needs in the community?
  • What are other hospices / other organisations already doing?
  • What benefits could community volunteering bring to stakeholders?
  • What are the challenges and drawbacks?
