Barnsley Hospice - Comfort, Care & Dignity
For 19 years Barnsley Hospice has been an invaluable resource for the people of the Barnsley Area.
Barnsley Hospice is a charitable organiazation which provides treatment, support and care for those facing life-threatening illnesses from which they will not recover. The hospice provides support for families, friends and carers.
Care and Services
Barnsley Hospice provides palliative care for people who’s illness may no longer be curable. This could be cancer but it also includes other life limiting conditions such as Parkinson's or heart disease.
Care provided is patient centred and aims to achieve the best quality of life possible.
Care is not focused on the disease but on the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of the patient and their family and if necessary provides support in bereavement.
Barnsley Hospice is unable to add days to life, but strives to add life to days.

There are currently eight Barnsley Hospice Shops, seven of which are ‘general’ charity shops. In addition there is a specialist furniture shop.
The shops sell good quality clothes, bric-a-brac and furniture kindly donated by supporters of the Hospice.

Barnsley Hospice is a charity which serves the local people of Barnsley and surrounding areas. It respects individual needs and wishes, caring for each person to help them achieve the best quality of life possible.
We are always looking for new volunteers and there is so much people can do to help, often without realising it, for example:
· Driving patients to and from the Limes day unit
· Helping in the gardens
· Working in the kitchens
· Working in retail outlets
Plus many more opportunities and all that is required is a regular commitment of approximately 4 hours per week.
All volunteers need to complete an application form and provide 2 references. Hospice volunteers are invited to attend an informal interview and a tour and a Criminal Records Bureau check will also be undertaken.
Volunteers attend an induction day with additional training as required depending on the role being undertaken
The hospice exists to provide comfort, care and dignity. There may be some tears and sadness but it is not a depressing place and is full of fun and laughter
