Volunteer Guide Team

The WCH Volunteer Guides are people who have friendly and outgoing personalities who enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and cultures; have a written and verbal command of the English language; they are computer literate and familiar with portable technologies such as iPads, tablets, and mobile phones or willing to learn.

Our volunteer guides provide a person and family centred care approach to their role as they enjoy being able to help others by directing or guiding them around the hospital. Being part of the WCH Volunteer Guide team is a great way to meet people, have fun and keep fit!

The Guide Team operates Mondays to Fridays from 8am to 4 pm comprising of 2 shifts per day; 8am -12noon and 12noon - 4 pm. Each volunteer is expected to fulfil one 4 hour shift per week.
