Volunteers at Royal Darwin and Palmerston Hospitals

Royal Darwin and Palmerston Hospital is supported by volunteers who work alongside hospital staff to provide support to patients and their families.

Volunteers are local community members who provide services such as:

  • welcoming visitors and providing directions, assistance and information at hospital reception
  • assisting patients, their families, friends and carers to find their way around the hospital

Volunteering at the hospital can be rewarding. As a volunteer you can:

  • build friendships and networks
  • increase your confidence and achieve self-satisfaction
  • enjoy working in a friendly team
  • develop your skills and knowledge
  • be involved in decisions about programs and services
