Volunteering at Epworth


Epworth HealthCare has more than 200 volunteers across our hospitals and auxiliary groups, helping patients and visitors feel comfortable while at hospital.


Our volunteering programs are based on a commitment to enhance care for patients and to enable volunteers to develop skills and be their best.

Why volunteer at Epworth?

Joining a dynamic, committed and strongly established volunteer team you will be contributing towards Victoria's leading private and not-for-profit hospital.

Not only will you be adding to the care of patients, you'll be supported by a team where you are valued, you'll develop new friendships and most importantly you'll have fun.

Meet some of our valued volunteers and hear about their rewarding experiences.

How you can help


  • Volunteering in our hospitals - providing support ranging from newspaper delivery and wayfinding to patient visits and hand massage.

  • Volunteering in our corporate department - assisting with administration tasks that support Epworth's delivery of care. These roles are sometimes located outside of our hospitals.

    To learn more about in-hospital and corporate department roles, see the volunteering services program information below or view our current opportunities.

  • Auxiliary groups (fundraising) - be part of groups who raise money for specific Epworth services, such as cardiac care and oncology. To learn more visit the Epworth Medical Foundation website.
