Cancer Council WA
Cancer Council WA is Western Australia’s leading cancer charity working across every aspect of every cancer. Every day, we support families affected by cancer when they need it most, speak out on behalf of the community on cancer issues, empower people to reduce their cancer risk, and find new ways to better detect and treat cancer.
Volunteers are an essential part of our organisation and have been helping us deliver programs and services to people affected by cancer since 1958. In this, our 60th anniversary year, we especially celebrate their outstanding contributions and their commitment to our cause.
Volunteering WA has been part of our journey and growth over many years. Through Volunteering WA membership, Cancer Council has been able to access resources, information and support to assist the development and effectiveness of our volunteer involvement program. We also make the most of regular networking forums, for learning and sharing, as well as professional development training in volunteer management.
Our relationship with Volunteering WA has helped us develop a high quality volunteer program that meets the needs of our clients, volunteers themselves, the WA community and our organisation.
