Hospice Volunteer Training Program 

The Surrey Hospice Society is a non-profit organization that supports individuals dealing with a life limiting illness. The support offered by volunteers is extended to the individual’s family and loved ones. We have opportunities for you to join our expanding hospice and bereavement programs. 
This 33-hour course provides learners with a basic introduction to Hospice Palliative Care and the knowledge and skills necessary to work as a hospice volunteer with those impacted by a serious, lifelimiting illness or grieving a loss by death. This course is experiential and will require participants to share on a personal level. 
Participants will learn and practice skills in accordance with hospice volunteer provincial standards and best practices. Some of the topics covered in the training program: Palliative Care; Boundaries Bereavement; Communication; Self-Care


Interested individuals must first arrange an initial interveiw prior to acceptance into the program
