Information and Wellbeing Volunteers

Please come and join our growing team of volunteers.

Volunteers will work alongside the Information and Wellbeing Facilitators to provide a community based home visiting service to support individuals newly diagnosed with cancer, who are vulnerable and isolated. No previous experience needed as full training will be given. We are particularly looking for people with good communication skills and who are able to show empathy, as well as the personal resources to work independently. Car driver essential. 

Volunteering at St Luke's is a fantastic way to meet other people, a stepping stone back to the workforce with the benefit of helping people in your local community at a time they need you the most. It is a friendly, warm and fun place to work. We have a variety of volunteering roles available and you will definitely feel part of the team. A good sense of humour is essential.
