Volunteering

Cancer Council ACT is always in search for the right people to assist us with our mission to reduce the impact and burden of cancer in the ACT and surrounding area. 

People from all walks of life choose  to volunteer with Cancer Council ACT. Students and young people volunteer to gain valuable work experience and skills, other people choose to volunteer because they want to use their developed skills and experience for the common good. People  volunteer to give back to the community, to meet and engage with new networks or because they want to to something to combat cancer.  There are many reasons and motivations behind why people volunteer their valuable time to support Cancer Council ACT.  

Read more below about volunteering below or complete and submit an Expression of Interest Form now, and Cancer Council will be in touch with you.
