Volunteers are the backbone of our organisation. We are always looking for individuals to bring fresh energy and ideas to a range of volunteer roles. Whatever your skillset, availability or areas of interest, you may surprise yourself with the different ways you can help fulfil a final wish.
Administrative, data, business, digital, creative or marketing skills are all needed by Ambulance Wish Western Australia to fulfil final wishes and promote the voluntary organisation. For example, volunteers can help with all kinds of tasks, from data entry to mascot uniform sewing, while those with specific skills – such as marketing or management, can help with specific projects or initiatives, to help improve our processes or provide strategic advice. If you’re able to use your skills to help us, please complete the below volunteer application form.
You can volunteer on an ad hoc or regular basis, and we promise you’ll always feel welcome.
