Volunteer at the Leukaemia Foundation

Help make a difference to the lives of people with blood cancer and gift your time as a volunteer. You’ll make a difference in your own life too.

Your time, skills and technical knowledge are highly valued and can be of enormous benefit to your community. Volunteering also means you’ll meet new people, gain experience and have fun!

If you want to gift your time, connect with your community and make a lasting change, we want to hear from you. You can explore current volunteer opportunities, or register to volunteer on our volunteer hub here >

Ways to volunteer

Helping at events

When it comes to fundraising events, volunteers help with everything! From hairdressers helping to shave heads to assisting with the set-up of sponsored walks, if you are fit and able, the opportunities are endless.

Start a new Branch

The Leukaemia Foundation Branch Network plays a vital role in raising awareness and essential funds for people living with blood cancer. Our network of Branches consists of dedicated volunteers who:

  • Promote the work of the Leukaemia Foundation in their local community
  • Support the Leukaemia Foundation’s major fundraising campaigns, World’s Greatest Shave and Light the Night.
  • Host other fundraising activities for the Leukaemia Foundation
  • Drive people to and from treatment.

Become a volunteer driver (note: service currently suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions)

Would you like to be a volunteer driver? Offering a friendly smile and helping hand to people undergoing treatment, this role could be just right for you. If you’re over 25 years old, have a current open driver’s license and are available for at least one day a month between 8.30am – 5.00pm Monday to Friday, we’d love to hear from you. Call the team on 1800 555 021.

Provide administrative support

As an administration volunteer, you can support the daily operation of the Leukaemia Foundation, answering phones, entering data and helping with mail.

Share technical expertise

The Leukaemia Foundation benefits significantly from the professional expertise of volunteers, including our Board. Our Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee comprises of 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 other technical skills to contribute please contact us at volunteer@leukaemia.org.au.
