We are looking for a wide range of volunteers

A lady smiles over her shoulder and packs a newsletter in a bag.

There are many ways to help support Parkinson’s WA with your time and/or skills and Parkinson’s WA is always grateful to receive assistance from volunteers.

Not everyone is in the position to provide financial support when donating to a charity but we know your time is just as valuable.

Our volunteers help to minimise administration costs and ensure that more of the money we raise goes directly to helping people living with Parkinson’s in Western Australia.

Our volunteers help us to keep costs down and productivity up!

A lady smiles and sits on a bench in the park.

We celebrate our volunteers including our resident long-standing volunteer Pat Chadbourne who gave more than 20 years of service to the organisation. Pat said she was going to miss the Parkinson’s community. 

“The Parkinson’s community is important to me because it has given me a better understanding of how this condition affects the lives of the those who live with it and how the Parkinson’s nurses play such a valuable role,” she said.

“What I enjoy most about volunteering is meeting and working with other volunteers and knowing that in some way we are helping others.”
