Volunteer opportunities

Volunteering at Peninsula Health is a rewarding experience for yourself, our patients, their families and carers.

Peninsula Health’s Volunteer Program is committed to providing meaningful volunteer roles to help support our departments in delivering the best consumer 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.
