Volunteering at Western Health

The Western Health Volunteer Program focuses on engaging with our local community by offering relevant and worthwhile volunteering opportunities.

Community members are encouraged to share their time, skills and life experiences through a range of diverse and innovative volunteering roles, working alongside health care professionals to deliver Best Care outcomes for patients and their families.

Our Volunteer Program operates across Bacchus Marsh/Melton Hospitals, Footscray, Sunshine and Williamstown Hospitals, Joan Kirner Women’s & Children’s Hospital, and the Sunbury Day Hospital.

Additionally, we also coordinate the Williamstown Hospital Opportunity Shop, and Bacchus Marsh/Melton Opportunity Shop, which are situated separately to the Hospitals.

Our Volunteer Program has been established and is maintained in accordance with all relevant National Volunteering Standards and Principles.  

Western Health is committed to recruiting and retaining volunteers who actively support our vision, purpose, and values.


Together, we deliver the healthcare of the future.


Providing the Best Care for the people of the West, in the right place and at the right time.


Compassion - consistently acting with empathy and integrity improving the experience of patients.

Accountability - taking responsibility for our decisions and actions.       

Respect - for the rights, beliefs and choice of every individual, communicating respectfully in all situations, recognising and respecting diversity.

Excellence - inspiring and motivating, innovation and achievement.

Safety - prioritising safety as an essential part of everyday practice.

Western Health has developed a strategy for sustaining a positive workplace across all sites. The EMPOWIR strategy was established to strengthen and maintain a positive workplace environment where all employees and volunteers feel safe, and are enabled to work to their full potential ensuring Western Health offers their patients the best possible care outcomes.

Please note: A minimum of three (3) Covid-19 vaccinations are required to volunteer. The minimum age requirement to volunteer is 15 years, however this may vary due to the nature of the role, for example Maternity Volunteer Partners (minimum age requirement 18+).
