Perth Children's Hospital volunteers - a selection of group photos

PCH volunteers play an extremely important role in making sure patients and families have a positive hospital stay or visit.

Volunteers add the most important of all ingredients to the hospital – love, empathy and the ability to create an atmosphere of friendliness and goodwill.

Our dedicated volunteers contribute to the wellbeing of children and young people and commit their expertise and time to the running of the hospital in ‘behind-the-scenes’ jobs and in support roles for patients and families. 

Our volunteers are easy to spot in their tangerine tops and are happy to help at any time.

Prospective volunteers must meet the following criteria: 

  • Be aged 18 years or over
  • Be able to commit to at least one four hour shift per week for at least 12 months
  • Be willing to obtain Police and Working With Children checks and have a blood test when requested to do so
  • Attend any mandatory training, including an orientation session
