This session will cover all the services and aspects of the organisation as part of an induction programme. The Volunteer Administrator will register and contact the volunteer to discuss placement.

There are two types of Volunteers:

  1. Enablers – Volunteers who do not have direct contact with patients
  2. Caregivers – Volunteers who are trained further in Palliative Care
