News Staff and Volunteers

At Weldmar Hospicecare, we are grateful to all of our volunteers that offer their free time, skills and commitment to help their community.  They are an important part of Team Weldmar and without them we wouldn’t be able to provide the services that we do.  Whether you are a student looking to gain experience in your chosen field, or someone looking to develop their skills outside of education, we have lots of roles available to suit you. Lending a hand in one of our shops, serving meals to patients, providing counselling to loved ones, or helping out at a fundraising event, there are lots of ways in which you can help.
