We understand that volunteering with a palliative care organisation can seem daunting but that’s why we work with you to match you, your skills, and your interests to our clients and carers as best we can to make sure both of you are comfortable with the relationship. We are flexible with your work/life balance, and we will make sure you work the hours you prefer.

We provide comprehensive palliative training as part of our volunteer orientation program, ensuring our volunteers have the skills, knowledge, and confidence to support clients and/or carers. We constantly upskill and provide additional training to all our volunteers to ensure they feel empowered in their roles.

We strive to make sure you feel 100% supported in your role volunteering with us and we welcome any feedback on how we can improve.

If you want to make a difference but don’t feel like you can commit to a schedule-based roster that’s completely OK! We have many services that are perfect for someone who needs more flexibility in their life but still wants to make a difference.

The following is a list of services that our volunteer team provides to support our clients and their carers:

  • Respite
  • Companionship
  • Biography writing
  • Administration Support

Come and join our friendly, award-winning, and caring team.  For more information, please call 9455 0822 or email us at volunteer@banksiapalliative.com.au.
