What do Volunteers do at Peter Mac?

Volunteering at Peter Mac includes many tasks to assist patients and clinicians across the centre. 

Some tasks volunteers may be involved in include:

  • Helping patients navigate the building
  • Providing wigs and headwear
  • Hairdressing
  • Massage
  • Manicures
  • Assisting in administrative tasks associated with running our centre.

We also have many hundreds out in the community, corporate and business world who provide much appreciated and extensive support to the Volunteer Services, which enables us to provide such a wide variety of free services and products to our patients.

There are many different ways you can support Peter Mac Volunteer Services.

Currently the Volunteer Service are seeking a qualified hairdresser and other volunteers who can sew to support our extensive Headwear Service, donations of fabric, new toys, movie tickets (adults & child) and raffle prizes.

There are also opportunities to help with direct care, such as part of the Pain and Palliative Care volunteer team.
