For those living with illness, the added upset of facing an overgrown garden that cannot be maintained or the difficult decision of losing a much loved pet that can't be exercised can add even more distress to an already testing time.

Hospice Neighbours is a community volunteer scheme being launched by St Raphael's Hospice and will really help those, who have life shortening illnesses and who want to remain at home. It will provide practical help and in turn allow them to spend quality time with their friends and family. Our Hospice Neighbours are local volunteers who are able to give one to two hours a week to walk the dog, shop, mow the lawn , read or write a letter, accompany patients on a visit or simply stop by for a cup of tea and a chat!

As a Hospice Neighbour you will only be asked to provide informal help to someone who lives within Sutton or Merton and won't be required to help with anything medical or related to personal hygiene

Befriending, Buddying & Mentoring,Caring,General & Helping

Offering a small amount of your time will make a real difference to patients and their families and friends when they need it most. No specific skills are required - just the ability to get on with people and a desire to help. St Raphael's Hospice will provide training and support. All we ask is that you are aged over 18 and attend our training and support sessions.
