Volunteer with Us

We’d love your help! Our dedicated team of staff are backed up by a large team of dedicated interns and volunteers and we are always looking for assistance in a variety of areas.

As the Australian Patients Association office is in Melbourne, unfortunately most intern and volunteer positions are also based in Melbourne. Not always though – so take a look at how you can help out below!


We’re looking for self-starters who want to sink their teeth into making a difference. You will need to have great communication skills, be able to work independently, and love working with people. Our interns work on a range of tasks including conducting research, developing and maintaining our website, design, preparing email updates, moderating our social media, and the profile of our campaigns in the media.
Generally, internships are based in Melbourne. We usually require that interns commit to helping out a minimum of 2 days a week, over a 3-month period. There are some exceptions to this though, so if you think you’d be a great intern, email our office with your resume attached and we’ll get back to you!


The Australian Patients Association thrives off the help of numerous members who volunteer their time, and there’s a whole host of ways to help out.
Whether it’s helping out on the day of an event, assisting with some admin work in our Melbourne office, lending us your photography and film skills or helping manage our helpline, volunteers are crucial to the every day operations at the Australian Patients Association!
Volunteer roles range from one-off activities, to regular weekly or bi-weekly positions. You can choose to help out at the odd event, or consider making the Australian Patients Association a regular part of your week! Stay tuned to this page to find what particular volunteers positions we have available, or email  [insert link here to word email ] with your availability and any skills you think may be useful!


We currently have a couple of exciting positions available in our Melbourne office. Check out ‘Opportunities at Australian Patients Association!’ for information on these roles and how to apply!
