Thinking of volunteering?  Here’s what you need to know………

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 throughout Kuwait. We are a charity that involves volunteers to support the delivery of palliative care and family support services to those in need.  With your help; there is more we can do to make a difference.

There are times when volunteering for a children’s hospice can be emotionally challenging and with this in mind we are particularly keen to involve more mature volunteers with varied life experiences.

For more information, contact Phillipa Huxtable, Volunteer Services Manager.

Volunteering at its best!

We have undertaken a full review of Volunteer Services at BACCH, to make sure our patients and their families gain maximum benefit from the unique relationship we have with our 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 volunteers 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 values, 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 and 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 have introduced more structured and robust procedures for volunteer involvement because we know this brings increased benefits for patients and families, for volunteers and for BACCH.

We have thought carefully……

We have decided to offer individual volunteering opportunities to those who are eighteen years or over.  Corporate and student volunteering is offered to groups and can be arranged by contacting our Volunteer Services Manager directly on 222 76 913 or by emailing volunteer@bacch.org

We 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.
