Volunteer with us

Important announcement regarding volunteering

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you sincerely for your interest in volunteering with Cancer Council WA.

We really appreciate your desire to support our organisation and people in WA affected by cancer.

As you will be aware, large public events, including the HBF Run for a Reason and Relay for Life Perth have been cancelled for 2020.

Given the high risk to public health currently posed by Coronavirus (COVID-19), Cancer Council WA has further suspended all volunteer recruitment as of 23 March 2020.

The safety and wellbeing of you, our volunteers and the wider WA community must come first. We know this decision is in the best interests of everyone involved and is also now in line with the guidance from the Australian Government.

Other ways you can support us

As a community-funded organisation, we rely heavily on fundraising events such as the HBF Run for a Reason and Relay for Life for vital income which enables us to continue to fund our cancer support, research and prevention programs.

While we are facing unprecedented times with the outbreak of COVID-19 across the world and here in our own community, the fact remains that people are still affected by cancer and our work must continue.

We are asking for your continued support, now more than ever.


If you are able to, you can still support Cancer Council WA by making a donation.

Any contribution makes an incredible difference and is greatly appreciated during these uncertain times.


For now, under the Australian Government guidelines, no large community events will be taking place in the near future.

However, we will update this page with any future ongoing or event volunteering opportunities when they arise.

We ask you to consider supporting Cancer Council WA in the meantime by making a donation.

Thank you in advance for your continued support and understanding.
