We couldn’t do what we do without our fantastic group of dedicated volunteers who each play an integral role in the running of Shooting Star Children’s Hospices. We’re always looking for new people to join our volunteer team, whether that's for a few hours each week, or helping out a few times a year at our events – your support makes a huge difference.

What you'll get out of volunteering

It’s not always easy to find the time to volunteer, but helping us doesn’t just help the children and families we support. It can also benefit you, your family and your local community.
