Volunteers have been the foundation of our work since the very beginning. Most of our volunteers are based at the Townsville University Hospital and provide an invaluable service to patients and visitors.
They drive the buggies, helping patients who need the buggies to travel across the hospital. They provide a warm welcome on arrival, providing information and directions to help visitors get around. Other volunteers help in wards and other locations and from time to time at events.
Volunteers aged less than 18 years or who are school students can apply for our school holiday program.
