Volunteering opportunities at Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre
Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre (HRC) is a campus of the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) which provides clinical rehabilitation services for people suffering from traumatic brain injury, stroke, other neurological and medical disorders, spinal cord injury, orthopaedic conditions and amputations. The HRC campus is based on Hampstead Road in Lightsview.
The respected team of volunteers at HRC play an important role by generously giving their time to support staff in enhancing the comfort and well-being of patients and their loved ones.
The Volunteer Service Unit is currently looking for volunteers to join the HRC Kiosk Team where they will learn new skills in customer service within a food outlet environment. Volunteers may also assist in a range of other areas such as:
- Ward volunteers
- Meet and greets
- Discharge surveys
- Administrative support i.e. rehab folders
Current Hampstead Volunteer, Silvana, says "volunteering as a retiree gives me the opportunity to engage with the community in a variety of ways. I've learnt new skills, enjoyed making new friends and generally feel a sense of purpose and satisfaction".
Volunteering is your chance to:
- Give back and be a valued part of our community
- Help people who are often going through difficult times
- Make new friends with other volunteers and staff
- Learn new skills and get some great experience
