Volunteer Information

Bayt Abdullah Children’s Hospice (BACCH) aims to provide the highest standard of multi-professional care and support to children with life limiting or life threatening illnesses who are residing in Kuwait. We are a charity organization that requires volunteers to facilitate the different events that help make our facilities and services accessible to those in need.

REVIEW UNDERWAY!

We are currently undertaking a full review of Volunteer Services to make sure our patients and their families gain maximum benefit from the unique relationship BACCH has with its volunteers.

We believe……

Volunteering is a valuable and integral part of our work in the community and we promote volunteering as a mutually beneficial experience for the volunteer and the organisation. We believe that volunteers should be treated professionally and respectfully at all times and that volunteers have a responsibility to uphold the value, principles, standards and reputation of the charity.

We recognise……

Volunteers give their skills, experience and time in carrying out diverse tasks in a broad range of activities, we are setting high standards to ensure they are appropriately trained, supported and managed throughout their volunteering experience.

We know……

Volunteers with the right skills and experiences are critically important in helping us to maximise the reach and impact of our services for the benefit of patients and their families. We are introducing more structured and robust procedures for volunteer involvement because we know this will mean increased benefits for patients and families, for volunteers and for BACCH.

We have thought carefully……

We have decided to offer individual volunteering opportunities to only those who are eighteen years or over. Corporate and School group volunteering will continue as before, with direct contact between the Volunteer Services Manager and the organisation/school.

We will……

Continue to welcome the fantastic support we’ve had from local businesses, professionals, educators and creative individuals or parties who very kindly give their time to patients and families, bringing beauty therapies, massage, music, art, magic and even engineering to the hospice.

Thank you to all our supporters and volunteers, there are exciting times ahead and we look forward to bringing you some great volunteering opportunities soon. Please keep an eye on our website.

Your gift of time is very precious
