Giving back to the community
Our volunteers represent a cross-section of our local Maitland community. They have chosen to be volunteers because they have experienced the journey of grief and loss and want to give back to their community.
To become a volunteer please contact our coordinator who can advise you on the required documents and checks.
The next step is to complete practical training specifically developed for palliative care so that you understand what is involved.
Our coordinator can then meet with you to review your suitability and availability to commit to volunteering within palliative care.
All our volunteers work within our organisation’s ethical guidelines and policies of confidentiality as well as bringing a non-judgmental and professional attitude to their volunteering.
