Our hospice team
What makes our hospice different? The fact that we are staffed almost entirely by volunteers.
“Brother Jacob and his colleagues at Skanda Vale are not paid professionals, but extraordinary people who have dedicated their lives in the service of others – this is obvious to all who use the current facilities.” - Phil Burr – West Wales Prostate Cancer Support
Our hospice is a service project, run by the monks and nuns of Skanda Vale multi-faith monastery. Our hospice team work full time for free, supported by a group of dedicated part time volunteers from the local community. Our hospice team is fully qualified and insured, with many years practical experience. We do continuous in-house training (conforming to all recognised standards) and run DBS checks for everyone.
