Since 1997, the Research Foundation has welcomed a range of volunteers from all walks of life. Our volunteer program is based on ensuring that the needs of the volunteer are taken into account with flexible options for sharing and developing skills and having fun while supporting local health and medical research.

How can you help?

We are seeking assistance with the following:

  • Assistance in co-ordinating and/or delivering special events and projects;
  • Raffle ticket sales;
  • Assisting with large mailouts;
  • Database activity; and
  • Working with us to make best use of your skills.


There are many benefits to assisting the Foundation as a volunteer, including:

  • Working in an interesting and dynamic (fun!) atmosphere
  • A chance to update your skills in a supportive environment;
  • Friendship and social contact;
  • An opportunity to play a vital part in life-saving work for your local community;
  • A chance to stay abreast of the latest health issues;
  • Assistance with transition into or from paid work; and
  • To add another dimension to your career or personal life.

How can your workplace get involved?

Working with the Foundation demonstrates that your business is committed to the well being of all Tasmanians. Your involvement with the work we do encourages an employee culture which is more socially conscious and community oriented.

We currently have opportunities for workplaces to join us for special event volunteering, such as our annual Easter Egg Hunt and Family Picnic or EDGE! Abseil Wrest Point. We encourage you to talk to us about how we can work with your organisation.
