Volunteers are a vital part of our team as they enhance our work in the community.
Our volunteers are supported by a Volunteer Coordinator dedicated to ensuring volunteers are trained, valued and respected.
There are some limitations to our volunteer roles due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
We are not daunted and we’re working with our volunteers creatively; we would love to hear from you! Our volunteers provide practical and emotional support.
They are a link to the community for our patients, their carers and family; bridging the gap between health care and the community.
Here’s what volunteers do at Ballarat Hospice care:
Assisting with a variety of tasks; that could be general office work, equipment maintenance or gardening.
Promoting the importance of in-home palliative care in and around our community. They understand our organisation, palliative care and the services we deliver.
Enhancing our ability to achieve excellence and high quality with their expert skills and knowledge.
Helping us with community functions and fundraisers. Ideal for people with limited time who may be happy to volunteer on a casual or one-off basis.
It’s a great opportunity to use your retail knowledge and skills for a few hours a week or fortnight.
Offering companionship and a change of routine for patients or their carers.
Email email@example.com – Lauren is our Volunteer Coordinator.
Talk it over with Lauren to learn more.
We want your experience to be as rewarding for you as it is for our patients, their carers and family.
