We are still recruiting volunteers!

We will need your help more than ever in the coming months as we are able to start reopening some of our departments. Any roles that are in need of volunteer support are listed on this site, so please do search and apply for any that interest you.

Demelza changes the lives of children with terminal conditions, for however long they are with us.

We help families have time together where they can relax, recharge and feel in control.

To do this, we are helped by a fantastic team of dedicated volunteers across Kent, South East London and East Sussex who give their time in many areas and we would love for you to join us.

We have a large number of volunteer roles available. Whatever your interests, skills, experience and however much time you have to give; we hope to find the right role for you - please browse our current volunteering opportunities to find out more.
