Volunteering at Peninsula Health

Volunteer for Peninsula Health

Our Volunteers

More than 700 volunteers currently complement the care and treatment of patients and clients across all the sites of Peninsula Health.

The work of Peninsula Health volunteers is deeply appreciated and valued by staff, patients, clients and their families.

Volunteers help to enhance the quality of the service and care we provide and we actively encourage community engagement.

Volunteering

Volunteering is a rewarding experience for all those involved. 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. Volunteers are found helping out in wards, kiosks, Emergency Departments, activity rooms, reception areas, in the community and participating in fundraising activities. 

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.

  • K.I.D.S. Auxiliary
  • Frankston Hospital Men’s Auxiliary
  • Frankston Hospital Pink Ladies Auxiliary
  • Rosebud Auxiliary
  • Rosebud Hospital Kiosk Auxiliary

Other ways to get involved 

Bears that Care – Bears that Care have a very big job to do. They provide care and comfort to vulnerable patients, including kids and adults who come into the hospital. They are also used as an educational tool to help explain to kids what’s happening. If you’d like to donate a knitted teddy, please download the Bear the Cares pattern here.

Please note: Volunteer Services does not offer work experience or work/student placements. 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.
