Visiting Volunteer Program

  • The Royal Children’s Hospital’s (RCH’s) commitment to excellence is enhanced by partnerships formed between the RCH and various charitable individuals, foundations, and support groups.  Whether paid or voluntary, an individual representing such a partnership is referred to as a “Visiting Volunteer”.  Visiting Volunteers assist at the RCH by visiting families as a representative of a support group or external volunteer organisation.

    The Visiting Volunteer Program (VVP) is coordinated by the RCH Volunteer Service.  This department is the contact point for all enquiries regarding Visiting Volunteers, including application forms for individuals and organisations. 

    Some organisations that are currently registered as Visiting Volunteer Groups are:

    • Starlight Foundation
    • Clown Doctors
    • Very Special Kids
