Our Volunteers

More than 800 volunteers currently complement the care and treatment of patients and clients across all sites of our public health service. They can be found helping out in wards, kiosks, emergency departments, activity rooms, reception areas and in the community.

The work of Peninsula Health volunteers is deeply appreciated and valued by staff, patients, clients and their families. Volunteers help enhance the quality of the service care we provide and encourage community engagement.


Volunteering is a rewarding experience for all those involved. It is important for you to think about what you would like from your volunteer experience so that we can best match you to one of our volunteer roles.

Volunteers are asked to make a commitment for 6 – 12 months.  Successful applicants will undertake an interview, police check (organised by Peninsula Health at no cost to volunteers) and complete mandatory orientation and training. Please note that for some roles, a Working with Children Check or Statutory Declaration may be required.

For Year 10 -12 students, Peninsula Health has a Work Experience Program which offers students the opportunity to observe and learn about the range of career pathways in Health. For information on how to apply for work experience please contact our Human Resources Department on 9784 2700.

Our Auxiliaries

With demands for Peninsula Health services growing every year, the additional resources provided by our auxiliaries’ philanthropic efforts are invaluable in enabling us to offer a comprehensive range of health services. Peninsula Health is fortunate to have a number of Auxiliaries established by volunteers who dedicate their time and efforts towards enhancing our health service.
