Cancer Council Tasmania would not be able to do the work it does without the help and support of its volunteers. Hear from some of our support volunteers.

VOLUNTEER ROLES CURRENTLY AVAILABLE

Supportive Care Program Volunteer Roles Currently Available

CCT has several positions available for those wishing to assist in supporting and providing information to anyone affected by cancer. These roles provide a welcoming presence to all visitors to the Hobart and Launceston Support Centres and to assist our Supportive Care Staff in the provision of services.

These roles would appeal to caring individuals who are able to give a half day once or twice a week, and there are options for volunteering on a more casual basis.

Cancer Council Tasmania (CCT) offers a Walking Support Group supported and led by a group of dedicated volunteers. The aim is to provide gentle exercise and social support to group members who have been impacted by cancer. The Walking Group only meets once a month (Wednesday in Hobart, Wednesdays/Fridays in the North & North West), so for those who may have limited time to volunteer, this is a wonderful way to be contribute and be involved with those in need of support, whilst being active at the same time!

Interested? We'd love to hear from you.

Please contact Human Resources to find out more and/or obtain an application form:

VOLUNTEER IN THE SPOTLIGHT

For anyone on the North West coast who has used our transport2treatment service, the name Trevor Snooks may ring a bell.

Trevor has been behind the wheel as a volunteer driver for 15 years and has transported hundreds of people to their cancer medical appointments over that time.

I had my own journey with cancer and I had just retired from work. At that particular stage the Cancer Council were considering starting the tranport2treament service up. So I said to my wife this could be enough to keep me going whilst I’m retired."

Trevor Snooks

Trevor was also the awarded Volunteering Tasmania’s 2022 Lifetime Achievement Volunteer Award. This annual Award is presented to one Tasmanian individual in recognition of outstanding volunteer contributions accumulated over a minimum of 25 years.  Not just for his involvement with t2t, but with Relay For Life as an event committee member, assisting at other CCT events and or course his three decades of involvement with AFL Burnie Auskick and District Little League.
