There are so many ways you can get involved and support Chestnut Tree House

Get involved


Chestnut Tree House depends on hundreds of volunteers who help in the hospice, in our charity shops and at our fundraising events. There are lots of ways you can get involved by volunteering across East and West Sussex. Due to COVID-19 most of our hospice-based volunteering roles are suspended. However we are pleased to be able to reopen our doors to volunteers for our charity shops, and for various fundraising events over the summer. Please read our latest updates here.
