Volunteer

We are looking for a wide range of volunteers

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!

If you are interested in giving your spare time or special skills, here are some of the areas where we are looking for volunteers. We suggest that you contact Toby at Parkinson’s WA on (08) 6457 7373 prior to completing this application. We can tell you what vacancies are currently available.
