Thank you for wishing to support Hospice Simcoe as a volunteer and taking time to complete the Volunteer Application. Volunteer Resources screen all applications and will contact those applicants most appropriate for available positions to arrange an interview. Due to the high volume of applications, we are unable to accommodate everyone.

The process of becoming a volunteer for Hospice Simcoe consists of the following:

  • Interview with Volunteer Manager/Coordinator about the potential opportunities and discuss how you would best fit into the available volunteer roles.
  • Volunteer Manager/Coordinator follows up with your references and a Police record check will be requested.
  • Once approved, complete further application process including; training, orientation, confidentiality agreement and code of conduct.
  • New volunteers will attend a post training interview to discuss the best fit of your skills and the volunteer opportunities that are available.
  • We strive to “engage” volunteers and work hard to make sure that your volunteer time is wisely spent in an area that is a good fit for both parties.
