Saint Catherine’s, which provides hospice care both in the Scarborough-based in-patient unit and in patients’ own homes, is looking for people to join its team both in clinical and non-clinical roles.

The Scarborough-based charity's volunteer roles are for a palliative care counsellor and a bereavement counsellor, with flexible hours available, plus training and support.

The closing date for both of these roles is February 19.

Debbie Hilton, staff and volunteer services manager, said: “We are excited to welcome new members to our brilliant team here at Saint Catherine’s.

"We have a real variety of roles on offer and provide a supportive environment both for our staff and volunteers.”

Saint Catherine’s provides outstanding care for adults with a life-limiting illness across Scarborough, Whitby, Ryedale, Filey, Hunmanby, Bridlington and Driffield.

All the charity’s specialist services are provided free of charge, with patients cared for both at the in-patient unit in Scarborough and in their own homes.

Care can be tailored to the needs and wishes of patients, their carers and loved ones.

It costs around £5.5 million a year to run Saint Catherine’s services, with only a third of this available through government funding.

It is only possible to raise the other two thirds with the support and generosity of the local community, who have supported the hospice for the past 35 years and continue to do so.
