Thank you for your interest in North London Hospice. In addition to our staff, our volunteers are an essential part of the hospice team – we couldn’t do all we do without you!  

North London Hospice is a great place to work because you are making a real difference to the lives of people affected by a potentially life limiting illness.

Our vision is the best of life, at the end of life, for everyone. If you’d like to be part of this mission, we’d love you to join the team! 

We have a range of roles covering multiple areas from clinical and specialist through to events, fundraising and communications. There’s something for everyone!

North London Hospice is an equal opportunities employer. We value diversity, and, we acknowledge that we currently have an underrepresentation from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people. North London Hospice job opportunities are open to all and we welcome welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.

In order for us to comply with our legal obligations, all volunteers are expected to undertake mandatory training which is provided by the hospice.

Volunteer stories

Matthew Ward volunteers at North London Hospice at Winchmore Hill once a week. Here he describes a little bit more about what his role as a volunteer entails.

Where Can I Volunteer

At the hospice, we offer volunteering opportunities both where you are in direct contact with those using the service and behind-the-scenes.

Depending on the opportunity or activity, you may be based either in our hospice Head Office building in Finchley, North London Hospice Enfield – the home of our Outpatient and Wellbeing Services based in Winchmore Hill, or in the community supporting people in their own homes or helping them to get out and about.

You may be interested in a role within our shops or as part of our innovative Compassionate Neighbours programme. If you’re a bit short of time, you might sign up to support our awareness and fundraising work locally; both great micro-volunteering opportunities.

Community and Fundraising

We run many fundraising events throughout the year which give people from all walks of life the opportunity to get involved, have fun and raise money for a great local cause.

In our shops

When you volunteer in a North London Hospice shop, you’ll be joining a friendly team at the heart of your local community.

Volunteer at the hospice

Getting involved as a volunteer is a great way to give something back to your community and can make a huge difference to an individual at such a difficult time in their lives.

The Compassionate Neighbours project helps people living with life-limiting illness stay connected to their community to prevent loneliness and isolation.
