Volunteering is at the heart of Calvary

We are grateful to the wide range of volunteers who dedicate their time to enhance the care we offer our patients, their families, friends and the community.

Small business owners, tertiary students, home carers, police officers, teachers, managers, engineers, nurses, counsellors and retirees make up our number. Volunteers are matched to services that draw on their diverse range of skills and interests, including:

  • Patient support – wards at each of the three hospitals
  • Patient support – Mary Potter Hospice (North Adelaide)
  • Dog Therapy
  • Extraordinary Ministry of the Holy Communion
  • Greeters / enquiry desk support
  • Hospitality support
  • Life Stories Program
  • Administration support

Volunteers need to be genuinely committed and work within their role description, adhering to strict confidentiality guidelines.

Qualities looked for in a volunteer:

  • Reliable and responsible
  • Positive approach to life
  • Sensitivity and understanding
  • Tact and discretion
  • Non judgemental
  • Sense of humour
  • Team player

Volunteers need to be respectful of others values and beliefs.

Once the application and interview process is complete, prospective volunteers attend an orientation program including mandatory fire safety, manual handling and infection control training, and receive an induction into the role they will perform. References, a police check, and a working with children check are required, at no cost to the individual.
