    Meet Kevin, a fabulous volunteer with our friends at Cancer Council NSW.

    Every day people from all walks of life donate their time, knowledge and energy to help Cancer Council SA support people affected by cancer. People like Kevin make our vital work possible: it is through the time and care of ordinary people that we can do extraordinary things.

    Cancer Council SA is always looking for people with various backgrounds, talents and skills. We take care to ensure your placement is of real benefit to the community and satisfying for you.

    Throughout the year we offer a range of short and long-term roles, projects and activities that can match your skills, interests and availability. As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to:

    • make a difference
    • share skills and experience
    • learn new skills
    • teach others
    • gain valuable work experience
    • meet people and make new friends
    • increase your confidence and self esteem

    This work can be in a variety of departments throughtout the organisation:

    Cancer Council SA operates under the National Standards for Involving Volunteers in Not-for-Profit organisations developed by Volunteering Australia. You will be provided with an orientation of the organisation, on the job training and supervision and in some cases Police Checks may be necessary. Furthermore, we ensure we provide a safe and friendly working environment in accordance with safety standards and to ensure we work ethically, we work within a Code of Conduct.

    We recognise that our volunteers are an integral part of our organisation and celebrate and acknowledge service milestones at volunteer meetings and provide a thank you lunch at the end of the year. To facilitate feedback from our volunteers, we conduct a morning tea with the Chief Executive twice a year where ideas can be shared and actioned.
