Volunteers enhance Swan Hill District Health by providing value added services to our patients, residents, families and visitors. We consider our volunteers a valuable and complementary part of the health care team. While our volunteers do not replace anyone in a paid capacity, the presence of volunteers in various areas throughout the organisation enhances the patient and visitor experience.

We provide volunteers with work that is meaningful, challenging and rewarding so they know they are making a difference while learning and developing new skills. We are careful to recruit the right person to the right role to ensure that the experience is beneficial to all. 

Our volunteer program is based on meeting our needs and matches volunteer’s skills and interests, with available roles.
There are many ways for individuals to volunteer at Swan Hill District Health .

As a large organisation we are able to offer opportunities and choice to our volunteers.

All volunteers are given relevant orientation prior to commencement and will be provided with day to day supervision and support.
