    Abstract

    Many hospices owe their origins to volunteers. Volunteers’ involvement today is still integral and vital to the success of the hospices they support. However the strategic importance of volunteers is often overlooked and the role of volunteers and their contribution to the cost effectiveness and sustainability of hospices is rarely considered. However if volunteers are to be fully recognised as a strategic asset we must be brave enough also to describe volunteers in business terms.
