Investing In Volunteers

Investing in Volunteers Standard in Volunteer Management

St Francis Hospice has been awarded the Investing in Volunteers Accreditation. This is the Irish & UK quality standard for best practice in volunteer management.
In order to receive this award the volunteer department had to ensure that we met all the practices outlined in the Investing in Volunteers guidelines. In addition, an assessor spent 4 days interviewing staff, volunteers & board members across both hospices.
Our volunteers play a very important role in enabling St Francis Hospice to provide a high quality of care to patients and families. We could not do our work without them. This award is for our volunteers as an acknowledgement of the commitment, dedication and support they give to St Francis Hospice.

Volunteer Manager Barbara Kilbride shares her story about supporting and managing the volunteers of St Francis Hospice.
A special thank you to volunteers Jean, Phyllis, Mary & Joke who supported this video. This video was in collaboration with Volunteer Ireland.
