We respectfully ask that people wait two years after receiving treatment for cancer themselves or after the loss of a loved one before deciding to volunteer. This period of time provides emotional distance that can be beneficial.

What our volunteers say

I started working at Clatterbridge 15 years ago. I wanted to work here to assist people with cancer and help them as much as I can. I feel that working at Clatterbridge has made a real difference, not just for the patients but for my health and wellbeing too - Ruth

My role is mainly patient-facing; meeting, greeting and answering questions at the hospital’s entrance. I’m often the first person patients speak to when they walk through the door and I love that I can put them at ease and try to make their day a bit easier - Wayne

I never leave Clatterbridge without a patient or family member saying something meaningful. Someone once said to me ‘People forget the things you say but nobody forgets how you treat them and make them feel’, and I feel that every day working as a volunteer. The people I meet definitely help me as much as I try to help them - Carole 

My husband, who was treated at Clatterbridge, is the reason I volunteer. The volunteers who looked after him were amazing and made things that little bit easier. I just wanted to give others what they gave to us - Angela
