The Friends of Peel Health Campus make a major difference to the patients and staff at the Campus. Their contribution adds considerable value to the services we are able to offer to the community.
Volunteers help with simple non-medical tasks, and they may also spend time in companionship with patients.
Our volunteer program is approved and registered as a non-profit organisation by the Department of Fair Trading. All volunteers are required to have a police clearance and sign a declaration of confidentiality and conflict of interest document.
Pastoral care staff and volunteers are dedicated to their task for those in need. Their task is to actively listen, support and accompany patients, family members, visitors and staff on their journey towards healing. They attempt to be present, respectful and compassionate. Team members offer an attitude of non-judgement and gentle guidance through appraisal of wellbeing, personal rapport, spiritual counsel, public prayer and bedside ritual.
