How we help
We provide volunteer support for BC Children's Hospital, and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children. Our department is responsible for the recruitment, selection, and assignment of volunteers for a variety of patient and service-based areas within these facilities.
Our vision is to improve the health of children, youth and women by working with partners, including community partners like volunteers, to ensure access to the best health care in the best setting. At each of the facilities, volunteers contribute greatly to the hospital experience of families.
The role of Volunteer Resources is to provide volunteer support to the programs and services offered by the hospital and health centre. This support is intended to augment and supplement existing services providing for the psycho-social, emotional, and developmental needs of patients and their families.
Volunteers do not perform the functions of paid professional staff.
