Volunteer for The Alfred
The Volunteer Program at The Alfred provides many extra and complimentary services that supplement the care and treatment of patients while in hospital.
Volunteers add to our quality of health care by helping support patients, their families, the staff, visitors and the community within the hospital.
Your contribution makes a huge impact to the Victorian community, and becoming a volunteer is a fantastic opportunity for you to play an important part in providing vital services to our community.

The Victorian Melanoma Service (VMS) at The Alfred was founded 25 years ago as the state’s first and only comprehensive multidisciplinary service for people with melanoma. Our team is globally renowned for its expertise in enhancing detection and improving patient outcomes in Australia whereone person is diagnosed with melanoma every half an hour*.
In 2020, thanks to the generous decision made by Brian Jenkins to include a gift of $500,000 in his Will, The Alfred was able to establish The Jenkins Fellowship for Lymphoma – one of four fellowships in our clinical haematology department dedicated to finding new treatments and therapies for people living with blood disorders.
