Gupshup Group Volunteer

  • Interview date:

At St Luke’s, Sheffield’s Hospice on Little Common Lane, we care for and support people who are living with advanced and often complex illnesses, their families and carers.

We are committed to ensuring that life is lived as fully as it can be for each individual we support and we support thousands of people each year, but we need to reach more people across Sheffield, particularly at earlier stages in their illness.

Right next door to St Luke’s Hospice is our Ecclesall Road South Site (previously known as Clifford House). It is a space for people and their loved ones who are affected by an illness that has no cure at any stage of that journey, offering relaxation and wellbeing, practical support and above all, fun! A range of activities and social events are available, as well as the opportunity to just relax in a homely atmosphere with beautiful gardens. ERS will enable us to help and support more people in need across the city in a range of ways that extend beyond end of life care.

We are looking for enthusiastic and confident volunteers on Tuesday afternoon to help supervise our hugely popular Gupshup club activities which run on a 6 weekly basis throughout the year.

Gupshup has been designed specifically to introduce Sheffield’s South Asian community to the facilities and services available at St Luke’s. The weekly mix of conversation and cultural interchange between differing cultures has proved a hit with visitors who enjoy the relaxed opportunity to simply chat and make new friends. Could you be our new group lead volunteer?


Flexible hours: Tuesday 1pm – 4pm
