ACT Health currently has a large team of volunteers who work across many programs.
Our volunteers come from many walks of life and include university students, retirees, mums and dads and even full time workers who are happy to give some time either after hours during the week or on weekends.
The Health Directorate Volunteers provide a service and support for patients, visitors and staff and are an integral part of the health care team.

Other External Volunteer Providers
ACT Health work closely with other organisations who also provide volunteer services for our patients, including:
So that we can plan and roster volunteers we ask for a regular commitment – it can be weekly, fortnightly and even monthly – as long as there is consistency and provide us with prior notice of any long absences. Dependent on the requirements of the volunteer program you undertake you may be working for a minimum of 3 hours and sometimes longer. This will be discussed further at interview.
