Perth Children’s Hospital Volunteers

Since 1929, the volunteer presence at Princess Margaret Hospital has been extremely important to the experience that our patients and families have during their time here. Their concern for people and their ability to create an atmosphere of friendliness and goodwill is invaluable. With the exciting move to the world class Perth Children’s Hospital we are expanding the volunteer team and we are recruiting now for a variety of roles.

If you are aged 18+, and want to make a positive difference to the lives of children and their families who visit the hospital then we would like to hear from you. You can download an application form from our website: . Once an application has been received you will be asked for interview and if successful will commence induction and training.  We are looking for people who can commit to a minimum of 4 hours per week (1 shift).

If you need further information contact Andy Wahid, Coordinator Volunteer Services 08 9340 8716 or email
