Volunteering

The important and valuable contributions our volunteers make across Rockingham Peel Group (RkPG) are vital to improving the experiences of our patients, their families and our staff.

Our volunteer network includes more than 200 community members who freely give their time to support programs and facilities across Rockingham General and Murray District hospitals.

If you are looking to use your skills, help your local community and meet new people, a variety of volunteering activities are available, including:

  • providing social support to vulnerable patients, including isolated or elderly patients in rehabilitation, and mental health patients
  • working front-of-house or behind-the-scenes in Elanora’s Café or Gift Shop at Rockingham General Hospital
  • greeting and directing patients and visitors around the hospital
  • driving patients on our bus to and from medical appointments for the Volunteer Transport team
  • entertaining children in the paediatric ward as part of Radio Lollipop
  • participating as a consumer representative on the Consumer Advisory Council (CAC).

All volunteers are required to undergo checks (this may include police and/or Working with Children checks) and are provided with training.
