Volunteer to help

We are always looking for passionate and energetic people to give their time and expertise.  

We simply couldn't provide all our services, or stage our events without our dedicated team of women and men who generously give their time and expertise, saving us more that $1million each year in dollar terms alone.

Come and volunteer your time and talent, make new friends and support our Vision to Cure and Mission to Care in a very practical way. 

Driving people to and from treatment

The Leukaemia Foundation’s transport service is a cornerstone of our support program. As a fully trained volunteer driver, you will offer a friendly smile and a helping hand to people undergoing treatment, which helps to ease any anxiety they may be feeling. Please note you must be over 25 years old. 

Providing administrative or maintenance support

As an administration volunteer, you can support the daily operation of the Leukaemia Foundation, answering phones, entering data and helping with mail. If you have a green thumb or are handy with a hammer, you could help to maintain our accommodation centres. 

Being a ‘Blood Buddy’

If you have had a blood cancer diagnosis, you could be a Blood Buddy to help someone who is newly diagnosed. As a mentor, you could share your personal experience of how life changed for you, what treatment was like, and the strategies you used to get you through with a positive attitude. For more information, or to apply to be a Blood Buddy, contact our Blood Buddy's coordinator: 1800 007 343, or email: bloodbuddies@leukaemia.org.au

Sharing technical expertise 

The Leukaemia Foundation benefits significantly from the professional expertise of volunteers, including our Board. Our Medical & Scientific Advisory Committee comprises scientists and clinical research haematologists, as does our research grant review committee. Medical and allied health professionals also present at conferences and support our education programs. If you are a researcher, doctor, nurse, complementary therapist, financial advisor, career guidance counsellor, motivational speaker or have another technical skills to contribute, please contact us.

Starting a local support network 

Our Support Services team extends across the country, but if you live in an area where there isn’t one, you could help by starting a support network. With our support, you can create a place for local people to meet people with similar experiences.

Helping at events

When it comes to fundraising and support services events, volunteers help with everything! From hairdressers helping to shave heads or being a route marshal for sponsored walks and runs, to providing registration support at disease education seminars and conferences – if you are fit and able, the opportunities to help are endless.
