Volunteers are an integral part of the organisation.  No role is more important than the other.

Client Support

Our Client Support Volunteers perform a role of a non-medical support person and through visits, provide comfort and support to clients (patients), carers and families.

They keep staff and team members, informed of any client, carer or family concerns.  Some other parts of their role are respite and transport.

Administration Support 

Administration, printing, mail-outs and collating are just some of the essential help that our Administration Support Volunteers provide.

Our Administration Staff oversee and guide the volunteers in the important tasks that need to be completed.

Community Awareness 

Our community awareness group was formerly known as the Friends of Banksia. Banksia endeavours to empower our  Volunteers to participate in the roles they enjoy the most.

Our Community Awareness Volunteers are an important means for Banksia to be able to ensure children and adults access our services at the most appropriate time of their illness.
