The Royal Children's Hospital Volunteer Service has been in
operation since 1961, when the hospital was based in
Carlton. At that time all volunteers
were women. New volunteers were required to complete a
probation period of work in the Sibling Creche, caring
for the brothers and sisters of hospital patients.
Today there are more than
300 people who volunteer at the RCH in various roles. Many aspects
of the volunteer service have changed over the years, however the
tradition of providing support for families and patients
continues. See our services page for information on
the volunteer roles within the hospital.
