Volunteers play a vital role here at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre and are a much admired and respected addition to our hospital staff.
We welcome all volunteers – aged 16 years and over – irrespective of gender or background. We only ask that you are reliable, cheerful and sociable.
Most volunteers come into the Centre once a week for three or four hours. However, we do ask that you commit to a minimum period of six months.
We need volunteers who get on well with people and who are good at putting others at ease - People who are good listeners, and who are patient and tolerant.
We respectfully ask that people wait two years after receiving treatment for cancer themselves or after the loss of a close relative, before they decide to volunteer, as this period of time provides distance that can be beneficial.

Would you like to help patients at the centre who are experiencing hair loss?
Headstrong is a free, individual appointment service run by specially trained volunteers to offer support and practical information to patients at the centre who are experiencing hair loss due to their treatment.
The service is very popular with patients. Appointments are carried out in a bespoke ‘salon’ in the centre where they can find out more about wig services, how to tie head scarves and how to take care of their scalp during hair loss.
We want to be able to offer this service to more patients on more days of the week, so need more volunteers.
Can you spare two days a month to become a Headstrong volunteer?
We are recruiting for befrienders to join our ward staff in creating a calm, caring and comfortable ward environment. We are looking for anyone who can spare a few hours a week to provide companionship to some of our inpatient population. This maybe providing a listening ear, chatting over old photographs, share in watching a movie together, listening to music or playing cards/bingo. Such interactions with others can really help to improve patients’ spirits and have a positive effect on the healing process.
Volunteers are needed between the hours of 8am – 4pm Monday to Friday.
You must be over 16 years old:
