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 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 across Kent, South East London and East Sussex. Whatever your interests, skills, experience and however much time you have to give; we hope to find the right role for you to help us support more families with children who have terminal conditions.
