Become a Volunteer


Not only were volunteers behind starting Franklin Hospice in the first place (see A Brief History of Us), they remain an integral part of our team and we could not do what we do without them. Their roles are many and varied, including:

  • Helping at fundraising events (see our current events here)
  • Assisting at our family support groups (here’s an example)
  • Producing patient biographies
  • Sitting with patients to provide companionship
  • Working in our shop, (front of house and back of house)
  • Gardening
  • And many other roles

If you or someone you know have a few hours to give each week, or even every now and then, please download the application form below, and email it to karena@franklinhospice.org.nz. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
