We welcome the support of local businesses wanting to volunteer for us and there are so many ways to get involved! With so many companies offering their teams the chance to give up some time for a good cause, we have a range of different ways in which you can help. Although these opportunities are limited, we’d love to hear from you!
At our events
Help us with set up on the day before a CHSW event, or on the day itself. This could involve working on the registration desk, marshalling, or helping us pack down afterwards!
In the fundraising office
We are often in need of volunteers to assist with research, database inputting, preparing mailings or helping to organise events.
At our hospices
Help with the maintenance of our beautiful hospice grounds and gardens. This could involve clearing paths and public areas. Please note, we can’t always accommodate large groups at our hospices and these opportunities are limited to certain dates of the year.
Promote our work
Help us promote our events and raise awareness of our work by joining us on promotional activities or flyering days.

Raise your company’s profile in the local community
The corporate fundraising team works with companies in a number of ways from long-term strategic partnerships, to Charity of the Year, sponsorship and employee volunteering. The team creates tailored and unique partnerships to benefit both your company and Children's Hospice South West.
