Volunteers are vital to achieving of our vision and mission.

Volunteering at Ovarian Cancer Australia

As a national organisation, Ovarian Cancer Australia’s volunteers are vital to the growing ovarian cancer movement, helping us to increase our reach.

From the strategic leadership of our national board of directors, to our volunteers championing ovarian cancer awareness in their local communities, our volunteers are intrinsic to the success of our organisation.

Our volunteering vision statement

Ovarian Cancer Australia believes that volunteers are vital to the achievement of our vision and mission. They bring energy and commitment to our organisation and demonstrate the power of community.

At Ovarian Cancer Australia we aim to create an environment in which volunteers:

  • Contribute in meaningful ways to the success and growth of our support, awareness, advocacy and research programs

  • Are empowered to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and the work of OCA in their communities

  • Bring unique skills, experience and insights

  • Have the opportunity to develop new skills and enhance their work experience

  • Are appropriately briefed, trained and supported in their work with us

  • Are valued as part of our team and our community

  • Are acknowledged and thanked for their contribution

Bob's volunteering experience

"For me, being a volunteer is more than just being useful and doing good work. Like any job, if you do not think that you are valued and that you make a difference then you should stop. Ovarian Cancer Australia is an organisation whose task is that “no woman with ovarian cancer should walk alone”. Ovarian cancer is lethal and there is a great need. Because of this the people who work at Ovarian Cancer Australia are motivated and have a single purpose. Why would you not want to help?”
