Volunteer

Light the Night volunteersOur volunteers have been helping to beat blood cancers since the charity was established in 1975. Their support is invaluable because we don’t receive any ongoing government funding and so rely completely on the generosity of individuals, communities and organisations to help us provide patient support and invest in research. The tireless work of our volunteers is vital in helping us support and care for patients and families affected by blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Types of volunteering

There are several ways you can volunteer for the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland:

Driver volunteering

Provide a safe, reliable and flexible transport service to haematology patients so they can attend their medical appointments or go on special outings.

Event volunteering

Event volunteers are crucial to our volunteer program. You can help with our fundraising activities, playing your part in coordinating huge community events that would not be possible without your support.

Ongoing volunteering

Ongoing volunteers make a regular commitment to the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland. You’ll typically help support our staff in their day-to-day activities.

Project volunteering

Project volunteers are normally skilled professionals who want to help us in their field of expertise. You will deliver set pieces of work to improve or develop the way we work, or help coordinate specific initiatives that we can’t normally undertake.

We value our volunteers

Our volunteers are treated with the same respect as the paid members of our team and are offered positions that best recognise their skills and personal preferences. Volunteers are provided with support and training to perform their chosen tasks. All our volunteers are required to attend an orientation session, featuring an organisational overview and an introduction to volunteering.
