While most volunteering takes place during office hours, you can volunteer at evenings and weekends too, depending on what you want to do and your availability. Within the hospital, our volunteer workers are part of the team and are rostered on to a shift. If working in the community then the hours are more flexible. If your circumstances change, we can always be flexible.
