Banksia is now recruiting Volunteers. Banksia’s Award Winning Volunteers are an integral part of our service and aid in the delivery of quality, sustainable palliative care to clients in Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs.
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, ensure our volunteer 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 role.

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.
