Volunteering at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital

Volunteers get a lot of satisfaction from helping the public and the jobs do not require a great deal of skill but do require a commitment to a weekly attendance of at least 4 hours.

If you would like to volunteer at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital you have several areas you can apply to.

Each group is an independent organisation so please apply to the group you would like to work with and they will send you the required forms for you to complete which will include a police clearance.
