Additionally, our Lead Volunteers receive an enhanced level of training enabling them to take on additional levels of responsibility.

Organisation aims and objectives

Sue Ryder is a British palliative, neurological and bereavement support charity based in the United Kingdom. The organisation provides care and support for people living with terminal illnesses and neurological conditions, as well as individuals who are coping with a bereavement. Help us be there when it matters. Last year, over 15,000 volunteers supported us across the charity, and without them, we simply couldn’t achieve our ambition to provide more expert care for more people. Come along and join our friendly team in the Prestwick Shop to help raise money for this worthwhile cause.
