The Foundation on the frontline
Your time is one of the most valuable gifts you can give to help sick kids in WA get better, faster. Volunteers play a vital role in our achievements here at Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Joining the Foundation as a volunteer helps us raise vital funds for groundbreaking research, innovative equipment and technology, world class expertise and positive patient experiences. Beyond this, it’s a great way to meet new friends, experience new things, get work experience within a charity organisation and get involved with a cause that has touched many WA families.
No matter what your skillset, we will find valuable work for you to do for the Foundation, and support you while you do it. From event support to working in our Gift Shop or office, dressing up as Stitches, or hanging out with the kids in Fun on Four, there is valuable work all around—and we need you to help us get it done.
Join us, in the most personal way possible: volunteer today. Together we can support WA’s sick kids in leading healthier and happier lives.
Frequently Asked Questions
How can I help?
We are always looking for volunteers to help with events, donation tin drop-offs and pick-ups, merchandise sales, community stalls, and Hospital volunteering.
What is the process to become a Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation volunteer?
I am under 18 years old, can I volunteer?
From time to time, we may accept volunteers under the age of 18 for event volunteer roles. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator if you would like further information.
Do I need a Working with Children Check?
As many of our volunteering opportunities are events-based, you do not need to apply for a Working with Children Check (WWCC) unless specified. However, all of our interns and Stitches volunteers will need to apply for a WWCC. We will be happy to guide you through the process.
Do you provide work experience opportunities for school students?
As we do not have regular office-based volunteering opportunities, we cannot take work experience students on board. However, if you are between 16 and 18 and have an adult supervisor who is willing to volunteer with you, we would love to have you join us at our events. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator for more information by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Will I get a statement to confirm the number of hours I have volunteered for?
As a lot of our volunteers are students, we understand the importance of recognising the number of hours invested in volunteering for portfolio purposes. A statement confirming hours and volunteering duties can be provided upon request.
