Volunteers are an essential part of the extensive services delivered by Emmerton Park and we currently have over 50 active volunteers. We value our volunteers and are committed to improving the way in which we work together. We take care to ensure your placement is of real benefit to the community and satisfying for you. 

New volunteer roles are created in line with changing community needs.

As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to:

  • Make a difference
  • Share skills and experience
  • Learn new skills
  • Teach others
  • Gain valuable work experience
  • Meet people and make new friends
  • Increase your confidence and self-esteem

If you have regular time (no matter how little) we’d love to hear from you!

Emmerton Park Ladies Auxiliary Committee

The Auxiliary is an integral and valuable part of Emmerton Park and since being established in 1977 has raised over $300,000 to improve the comfort of residents and safety of staff. In addition to fundraising activities, Auxiliary members have made beds, cleaned, catered for functions, worked in the garden, assisted residents with activities, sat and read with residents and generally contributed to the day to day operations of Emmerton Park. 

The Auxiliary is immensely important and new members with a passion for aged care and who are willing to make a positive difference to the well-being of others are keenly sought.

If you would like to speak with an auxiliary member to organise any of the above services they offer, please call Ruth Smedley on 03 6452 1711.
