Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers make up a very large portion of our team, and without their contribution, we could not continue to provide our current range of services to local people who are living with cancer.

Many of our volunteers have been touched by cancer in some way, whether it be in their own journey or through supporting a loved one. One thing we all have in common is a strong connection to our purpose and an alignment to our values of care, compassion, collaboration, community, respect, confidentiality, innovation and cultural sensitivity.

For every hour you generously provide to Cancer Wellness Support, know it has a ripple effect back into your community and that collectively we do make a difference.

Based on our 2022-2023 annual report, our volunteers provide an incredible amount of support:


Be part of our purpose-driven movement

Volunteering in the community allows us to be part of something that is bigger than ourselves, offering many health and wellbeing benefits. 

Through volunteering, you can build stronger relationships, have opportunities to learn from each other, improve your mood and increase your happiness – all while feeling more connected to your community.

By volunteering with Cancer Wellness Support, your contribution goes towards assisting individuals living with cancer and their families, in often challenging times.

“Walking into the Op Shops is an experience of pure joy, radiating warmth and friendliness. While visitors initially seek affordable quality clothing and treasures, they find so much more as the genuine smiles and connections shared by staff and volunteers create an atmosphere of genuine camaraderie”

Pam Purcell, Volunteer

Through our volunteer program, we have a vast array of opportunities including (but not limited to):

  • social media and marketing
  • content development
