Western Health's Volunteer Program focuses on engaging with our local community by offering relevant and worthwhile volunteering opportunities. The program operates across four sites and is one of the most extensive health service volunteer programs in Victoria with over 600 volunteers and 250 students.
At Western Health, our employees and volunteers work together to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients and their families. We hold our volunteers in high esteem, and this is demonstrated by inclusive orientation and training sessions as well as recognition through award programs. From day one you will feel part of the Western Health team as you are supported by coordinators onsite and the introductory buddy system.
Our volunteers at Western Health enjoy giving back to the community; achieving a sense of purpose; developing new skills; creating friendships and working with socially, culturally and linguistically diverse communities. Our volunteers genuinely want to help improve the experience of our patients and their loved ones.
Community members are encouraged to share their time, skills and life experiences through a range of diverse and innovative volunteering roles. Prospective volunteers are required to make a commitment of at least 12 months to their position within Western Health. A typical volunteer role entails one shift per week or fortnight of approximately 3 hours in duration.
