We would not be able to provide the services that we do without our invaluable team of almost 1,000 volunteers.
We are often told that volunteering is a way of giving something back.
Don't just take our word for it, take a read of what our amazing volunteers think...
"Volunteering at Myton will be the best thing you could ever do with your spare time – or make time in your busy schedule to give a few hours to make a worthwhile difference to someone who needs your help. It doesn’t matter what you do, everyone is appreciated equally for their contribution. Enquire today; you will be so glad you did.” Ralph, complementary therapy volunteer
“While volunteering at Myton I feel I was contributing to a good cause and that my efforts help to make a difference. I feel I am in some way making a contribution to the lives of others in greater need than myself. I have met many interesting and great characters in my fellow volunteers, who have enriched my life. It is a very rewarding experience.”, Carol, shop volunteer
“Myton has changed my perspective on volunteering as it has made me feel more open to becoming a volunteer in the future and helping out where I can. All the staff I meet are highly supportive and very welcoming. I made the decision to volunteer at Myton as I witnessed the extent of care that a family member received whilst in a hospice, and how much difference the volunteers made in maximising his quality of life. Initially I was slightly apprehensive as I wasn’t sure how I would cope emotionally, but by the time I had completed my first shift I realised it was one of my most rewarding experiences. It’s a great way to provide support and compassion and provides you with the opportunity to enhance your confidence.” Morsal, volunteer on the Inpatient Unit
“I feel that I am making a difference to people’s lives and that I am giving something back to the community. I have also met some lovely people along the way.” Hazel, reception volunteer
