Volunteers and their voluntary work play an important role within the « mixed economy » of health and welfare provision in the U.K. A survey of volunteers working in a hospice organisation in Leicestershire (LOROS) found that most of them were satisfied with their work experiences as volunteers, and felt that they were adequately supported and valued by the organisation and its paid staff.
They had become volunteers mainly through contact with friends, and a substantial minority were motivated by their own personal experiences of death.
Their contact with dying patients did not cause them any serious emotional difficulties.
