Volunteer roles

Section menu

Volunteers fill a variety of roles across different areas of our hospital. Take a look at some of these roles below.  

Guide and Waitroom Support Volunteers

Often the first people a patient or visitor meets when they come to the Women’s, our Guide and Waitroom Support Volunteers fill a key role in helping people navigate the hospital. They also provide support and advice to ensure patients are comfortable and informed about the Women’s range of services.

Women’s Emergency Care (WEC) Volunteers

From ensuring patients and visitors are as comfortable as possible while they wait, to escorting them to other areas of the hospital, WEC Volunteers provide friendly and compassionate support in our Emergency Care department.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Volunteers

Volunteers in our NICU provide comfort, support and care to families during their time with us. They are also trained to settle, read to and soothe unsettled babies at times when parents or guardians are not able to be present.

Hawthorn Auxiliary

The Hawthorn Auxiliary has supported the Women’s for decades, hosting a regular stall selling goods made and donated by dedicated sewers and knitters from around Victoria. All money raised from the stall is directed to the equipment needs of our Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
