RCH Volunteering

Many women join the AWA to directly support the Royal Children's Hospital.  Perhaps they, or people they know, have had children who spent time in the care of the RCH.  Because the AWA falls under the banner of the Auxiliaries, there are defined specific opportunities in which we are directly allowed to assist. 


Opportunities are generally around helping in the hospital Auxiliaries Gift Shop, and minding gift stalls out in front of it.  This has evolved out of the traditional role of the auxiliaries where ladies baked and made clothes and gifts for sale, which they sold to hospital visitors just inside the entrance.

Auxiliaries Gift Shop


Each financial year, the shop's profits are distributed (according to percentage of hours worked) among the volunteering auxiliaries.

     Shop Hours: 9am - 4:30pm week days.  Closed weekends and holidays.

These are ongoing roles.  Please inquire with the "Auxiliaries Liaison - Retail" to determine whether there is a vacancy on the roster.  

There is also an option of being on the Emergency list to cover an absence, while you are waiting for a permanent shift to become available.

Stalls on the Pods

The stalls are also allocated on an ongoing basis to the auxiliaries who have things to sell daily.

 
Note: Please know that to volunteer at the hospital you must have a current Working with Children accreditation, Police check and RCH ID badge with hospital logo.
