Volunteering at Niagara Health

We believe every person in our region deserves to live every day of their life in the best health possible.

As a community-based academic centre, our focus on teaching and learning, research, innovation and partnership propel us to continually improve care and make a difference in people’s lives. Niagara Health volunteers contribute to our purpose of providing Extraordinary Caring. Every Person. Every Time through their hard work, compassion and dedication.

There are many reasons to become a volunteer at Niagara Health. The services and programs volunteers provide are an invaluable support that complements the work of our staff. Volunteering at Niagara health could be one of the most rewarding investments you'll ever make.

Volunteers have the opportunity to:

  • Share skills and abilities
  • Support a cause they believe in
  • Give back to the community

Benefits of being a volunteer:

  • Meet new people and be part of a community
  • Gain knowledge, new skills and valuable experience in a healthcare environment
  • Make a difference in peoples' lives

Creating a healthier Niagara is a collaborative effort and underscores the importance of our ongoing work with patients, families and our community partners to improve the health and well-being of our region. We know that the most advanced equipment in the world isn’t enough, it takes more to put a smile on a lonely face or warm the spirit of someone fighting overwhelming odds. It takes a personal and genuine commitment to caring, a true belief that we can really make a difference in people’s lives. 

Extraordinary Caring. Every Person. Every Time. That’s exactly what we’re working so hard to do.

Commitment: A typical volunteer must commit to a consistent weekly shift of two to four hours, for a minimum of one year.
