Volunteers

Volunteering with Mansfield District Hospital (MDH) gives you the opportunity to utilise and develop your skills and interests, whilst supporting patients, residents, visitors and staff. You may wish to offer companionship to patients and residents, gain valuable work experience within the health sector, bring meaning and purpose to both your own, and the lives of those you are supporting, or simply make a valuable contribution to the Mansfield community.

Whatever your motivation, we appreciate your interest in our programs.

Volunteers are an integral part of a number of areas within MDH, including:

  • Aged care facilities (Bindaree and Buckland House)
    • Companionship to residents
    • Assisting with activities such as outings, music, games and craft
  • Acute ward
    • Companionship to patients
    • Magazine / book exchange
  • Community Advisory Committee
    • Provide community perspectives on issues relevant to MDH
  • Community Health
    • VERILY project (supporting those caring for loved ones with dementia)
    • Mother Goose program (strengthening connections between parents/carers and young children through story and song)
    • Palliative care support
  • Gardening
    • Assist us to maintain our gardens so they are a relaxing place for all
  • Auxiliary members
    • Fundraising for important MDH projects

Our volunteers are non-judgemental and have a positive approach to life.  They interact with sensitivity, empathy, tolerance and patience.

All volunteers are provided with training and ongoing support, including opportunities to meet with the broader volunteer team.

If this sounds like an opportunity made for you, please pick up an application pack from MDH reception during business hours.
