Volunteers

Looking for a rewarding way to spend a few hours a week to help some friends in need? We may have the perfect volunteer job for you!

Much of the work Ostomy SA does to improve the lives of ostomates would not be possible without our incredible team of volunteers. We have been extremely privileged over the years to have the support of many skilled volunteers who have contributed an invaluable service, many attending weekly to help with the general running of the organisation.

Ostomy SA currently has a team of four paid staff who are supported by more than 30 voluntary workers. With flexible time commitments from four to 12 hours a week, we are always in need of skilled volunteers to assist us in:

  • Administration
    • counter service for members collecting suppliespacking and posting of mail orders
  • Telephone support
    • new member telephone contact (phoning new members to advise them of Ostomy SA’s services and the support available)
  • Craft work for fundraising activities
  • Marketing and events
    • assistance with organising the 2015 ACSA conference (to be held in Adelaide) – representatives from 21 associations across the country will attend

Please note: Insurance requirements mean we are unable to engage volunteers aged 80 years or older.

If you have the skills we need and feel that you would be able to assist, please call Ali or Ruth on 08 8235 2727, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to find out more.
