Grampians Health Ballarat boasts a strong, dedicated volunteer workforce, consistently providing support and assistance to patients, clients, residents and their families, right across the healthcare service.

We are extremely grateful to our wonderful volunteers, we thank them for being part of our committed team.

Volunteering provides an excellent opportunity to become involved, helps increase sense of purpose and allows people to give back to their local community. It is a great way to learn new skills, gain experience, meet new people and enable individuals to help others in a selfless way.

Grampians Health Ballarat offers volunteer training opportunities, access to free immunisations and invitations to special events.

A range of flexible volunteering opportunities are now on offer within our healthcare service.
