Cancer Council SA offers three different volunteer pathways: ongoing volunteers, event volunteers and Ambassadors. Find a role that suits you below.
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 in order 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.
