National Volunteers Week 14-20 May
More than 2000 volunteers support Department of Health and Human Services programs and services, either directly or through community-based organisations we fund.
As well as 500 ambulance volunteers and hundreds of hospital volunteers, our unpaid volunteer staff work in palliative care, day centres, cancer screening and control, and community health.
The Royal Hobart Hospital receives over 30,000 volunteer hours each year alone, valued at around $800,000.
So a big thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers!
