There are many reasons why people choose to volunteer. For some, it is an opportunity to give back to society or it makes them feel good to help people in need. For others, it offers the chance to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Whatever the reasons, volunteering enhances one’s self-worth and purpose in life.
At Singapore Hospice Council, we welcome all who are willing to contribute their time, skills and talents to our community efforts. There are many areas where you can volunteer and be involved in engaging and interacting with people to bring greater awareness about palliative care and educate them to make the necessary end-of-life care planning.
If you are new to Palliative Care, fret not! We provide training to equip you with the necessary knowledge to perform your role! Do also note that volunteer opportunities are on an ad-hoc basis.
