Volunteering at Peninsula Health

Volunteer at work


Volunteering is a rewarding experience for all those involved.

The work of Peninsula Health volunteers is very much appreciated. They provide valuable support to staff, visitors, patients, families and carers in our hospitals, community health and mental health services.


Peninsula Health is fortunate to have auxiliaries established by volunteers who dedicate their time and efforts to assist and raise funds for our health service.

Volunteering Opportunities

The Volunteer Program is committed to supporting departments to develop meaningful volunteer roles that enhance the patient experience. Volunteer opportunities exist that are specific to a particular site or program. It is important to think about what you would like to get from your volunteer experience, so that we can best match you to one of our specific and valued roles.
