A little about Us 

Hospice Volunteers, based in Hobart, Southern Tasmania is a public benevolent institution founded in 1985. Our purpose is to provide support for families affected by life-limiting illness, across Southern Tasmania. This includes support for people in palliative care and bereavement support for families. 

Our revenue is largely grant deed funded by the THS, and our work is closely associated with specialist palliative care services and with a range of community care providers.  

Partner organisations operate in North and North-West Tasmania. 

Our skilled volunteers provide both in-home and hospital-based support for families affected by life-limiting illness across the southern region of Tasmania. We also offer bereavement support through our Walking Through Grief program.  Hospice Volunteers operates with a team of professional staff and is governed by a voluntary committee of management. Committee members are elected at our annual general meeting and come from a range of backgrounds, both volunteering and professional.  

To find out more please contact our Manager, Stephanie Kirkman Meikle on 0400 595 342. 

Expressions of interest should be submitted by email, in the first instance, with a covering letter, cv or brief biography, explaining why you would like to join the Voluntary Management Committee and the attributes you will bring which will assist us to fulfil our mission. 

Candidates will be contacted and there will be an opportunity to discuss the post with the Chairman and/ or other committee members.
