Volunteers have been a part of St John of God Subiaco Hospital for over 35 years. Volunteers undertake various roles around our hospital and participate in companion and patient experience programs, supporting our patients and fellow caregivers. 

We interview all our volunteers to enable us to match your skills, interests and abilities to one of our roles so we can offer you a rewarding volunteer experience.

Volunteers must meet the following criteria:

  • Be over the age of 18 years.
  • Interview with the Volunteer Coordinator.
  • Undergo reference checks.
  • Give authorisation for a National Volunteer Police Clearance.
  • Complete an immunisation screening through our Infection Control team.
