Volunteer for your local hospice
Together for Hospice represents 26 hospice and specialist palliative care providers nationwide and exists to support and enable these frontline services to fundraise collectively at a national level.
Our annual on-street collection, Hospice Sunflower Days, will be taking place once again on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th June 2024. Volunteers all over the country will take to the streets in towns and villages to raise funds for their local hospice. Funds raised through the on-street collection and via our virtual sunflower garden will go directly to your chosen hospice service.
Hospices nationwide need to raise approximately €20million each year, with existing voluntary hospices receiving differing levels of state funding ranging from 58% state funded up to 90%. Some homecare services receive no state funding. Despite this, demand for services continues to grow and in 2022 alone, Hospice and specialist palliative homecare providers across Ireland cared for approximately 3,700 in-patients, 13,600 patients in their homes and made over 85,000 homecare visits.
If you are in a position to give a little of your time to volunteer for your local hospice on 7th & 8th June 2024 please get in touch with your local hospice.
Thanks for your on-going support and commitment to your local hospice – we are incredibly grateful to families and communities across Ireland for all of your continued support and important contributions.
