Volunteer With Us

St Oswald’s have a set of Values (CAPES) and Standards of Behaviour for all staff and volunteers.  These aim to give us all a clear and consistent approach as to how we behave towards and treat each other. The Values and Standards work together and are at the very heart of everything we do, they are what we believe in, what we are about and how we live each day to achieve our Vision for our community.


The Values and Standards of Behaviour feature in many aspects of our life here at St Oswald’s, from recruitment, ongoing appraisals and 121’s, to when someone chooses to move on from the Hospice.


Our Values (CAPES) are our core beliefs, they explain who we are, how we work, what we believe in and stand for. They reflect our culture here at St Oswald’s.


Our Standards of Behaviour are a living, working set of standards which relate to our ABC - Attitude, Behaviour and Communication. They work together with, and underpin our Values.
