Who would you like us to contact in the case of emergency?
We understand that former hospice patients, clients, and carers, may wish to support Blythe House Hospicecare (BHH) by volunteering. We strongly recommend a gap of at least 12 months between the date of discharge from all Blythe House services and considering a volunteer role based at the hospice that will not compromise health and wellbeing. A gap of six months is recommended before considering a volunteer role based in one of our shops.
We also recommend that anyone experiencing bereavement allows at least 12 months to elapse from the time they were bereaved before considering a hospice-based role.
Please contact the Volunteer & Support Services Team at Blythe House if you wish to discuss other ways of supporting Blythe House.
