Our diverse and talented team has more than 140 staff members, full-time and part-time – all with their own unique skills and expertise.
Majority of our workforce is made up of nurses, consultants and doctors in palliative medicine, as well as social workers, physiotherapists, occupational and complementary therapists. They work alongside fundraisers, housekeeping team, catering staff, maintenance workers, administration staff and others to ensure that our journey in free-palliative care goes on uninterrupted.
Without our team of 60+ volunteers who give their time tirelessly in all manner of roles – from assisting in our kitchen, manning the tills in our shops, to lending a hand at our many fundraising events, we wouldn’t have made it so far.
