Why volunteer with us?

Our volunteers tell us that volunteering is fun and rewarding and helps them meet new people. But most importantly you are an ambassador for Ashgate Hospice. Many of our volunteers know someone who has been cared for in the hospice or supported by Ashgate in their own home. With your help, we can continue to care for patients and their loved ones across North Derbyshire, in the hospice and in their own homes so thank you in anticipation of your support!


Our promise to you

When you become an Ashgate volunteer, we’ll always treat you with respect, consideration and appreciation. We’ll listen to what you have to say and ask you what you think and of course, your health, safety and welfare are our top priority.
