All of our volunteers must complete the 40-hour training programme and acquire the knowledge, skills, and ethos required to work in such a sensitive area as palliative care, particularly in situations where the volunteer will work closely with patients and their families.

Apart from our volunteers, we also have friends of Galilee who can help with tasks that do not need this kind of training, such as shopping, transporting meals, ironing, helping with an event, simple paperwork, and so on.

Call us to speak to our volunteer department on (+30) 210-6635955 (Extension 15) to find out how you can help.

Our volunteers are not paid nor do we ask them to pay anything.  They pay only for the cost of their own travel to and from where the volunteer activity takes place.

Many of the volunteer roles require some emotional involvement and this may not be easy if you are going through a period of bereavement.  It is usually advisable to wait for about a year to go by.  But everyone is different, and if you wish to become a volunteer and feel able to manage your grief, call us to speak to our volunteer department on (+30) 210-6635955 (Extension 15) to discuss.
