We love our volunteers
Our 450+ volunteers are an integral part of health care in the Greater Wellington Region and our hospitals rely greatly on their assistance.
Due to COVID-19 we are unable to accept new volunteer applications at this time. However we would love to hear from you in the future.
Duties vary to suit individual volunteers, some examples are:
- Greet patients & visitors
- Direct & assist people
- Patient & staff support
- Comfort and conversation
- Flower care
- Library service
- Serve in the Gift Shop
Event Volunteers assist us on a casual basis by supporting our special events as coin collectors, marshals, guides and by undertaking several other tasks at events like the Wellington Christmas Parade and the Wellington Children’s Hospital Street Appeal. We are always looking for more helpers so please email us at email@example.com if you would like to join our casual volunteer group.
The Community Trust of Wellington enabled the Foundation to purchase a baby grand piano for Wellington Hospital’s atrium. Volunteers play the piano every day, to the great delight of patients and visitors. We also have a number Volunteer Soloists (e.g Violin, Harp, Guitar) who bring their own instrument and play for patients and families.
We have volunteers in the Emergency Department 7 days a week between 9am – Midnight. Volunteers usually commit to a weekly 3 hour shift. Our Emergency Department volunteers assist patients and their families by providing comfort and care in emergency situations.
Our quilters, knitters and sewers create a variety of items for Wellington Regional Hospital’s Delivery Suites, Neonatal Unit and District Nurses. If you are interested in quilting, knitting or sewing to support Wellington Hospitals Foundation, and Wellington Regional Hospitals please contact Sally Barton at: firstname.lastname@example.org
