    Abstract

    In approaching this book, we set out to gather accounts from different countries of the changing landscape of volunteering in hospice and palliative care. We sought to understand volunteering within the changing contexts of both palliative care and of volunteering. The book, therefore, explores volunteering through a number of lenses. Authors also recount the challenges of supporting and managing volunteers through change and describe community models of volunteering whether initiated by organizations or by the community itself in response to local need. Most powerful of all was hearing from volunteers themselves, how they experience what they do, and what it means to them to volunteer in hospice and palliative care. The aim of this final chapter, therefore, is to give a brief overview of a few of the editors’ impressions, ending with some thoughts on what lies ahead for volunteering in this sector.
