Our Hospice Reception Volunteers are the first face that our visitors, contractors and visiting care professionals see when they enter the Hospice, and are a vital part of the welcoming and calming feel to the building.


What will I be doing?

You will be supporting the staff of Florence Nightingale Hospice to welcome visitors to the Hospice during evening and weekend hours.

You may be involved in the following activities:

  • Letting visitors in the main reception door (it will be locked for all of your shift)
  • Explaining how to sign in and make visitors aware of any restrictions/ precautionary measures in place for everybody’s safety
  • Give directions to their destination as directed by the In House Manager/ Nurse in Charge
  • Receive telephone calls, take and pass on messages accordingly


All volunteers are given support and training as necessary to ensure you are happy and confident in your role
