Get involved with your community!
IPC Health is the community health service for the western suburbs of Melbourne. We operate from six campuses – Deer Park, Altona Meadows, St Albans, Sunshine, Wyndham Vale and Hoppers Crossing – providing a huge range of health and wellbeing services and activities.
IPC Health volunteers are involved in many different ways from greeting people at the front door, to helping out in wellbeing activities, or participating in community consultations, right through to vital back of house admin and logistics roles.
If you want to support access to the quality health and wellbeing services for the diverse communities of Melbourne’s West, we have a volunteering opportunity for you!
Who can volunteer?
Anyone over the age of 18 can volunteer with us. As an IPC Health Volunteer you will be asked to undergo a National Police Check (organised by us), provide evidence of your immunisation history or serology report as well as your COVID-19 vaccination certificate. We can help with accessing these documents, if needed.

Volunteering at IPC Health brings everything together for Navdeep
Navdeep had never volunteered before when he took up one of our Concierge Support volunteer roles at Deer Park. But his heartfelt desire to connect with the community and support people in all circumstances made him a natural. He believes that responding to people’s needs and making connections in the community is the best way to work and live. Navdeep says that particularly during the pandemic it has never been more important to find ways to support people at difficult times.
Navdeep looked for a volunteering opportunity at IPC Health because friends who were on staff spoke highly of the supportive culture of the organisation. He started volunteering in September and was excited when he heard that several COVID-19 Health Screener positions were being advertised. Navdeep applied straight away and was delighted to find he was successful.
Navdeep is also committed to multiculturalism and working towards equity. As a speaker of Hindi and Punjabi as well as English, Navdeep will be a great asset at IPC Health. He loves the idea of being able to use his extensive language skills on the job. ‘Language is part of customer service,’ Navdeep says and he is keenly aware of the risk of people missing out on information due to language barriers. ‘Lack of information is a dangerous thing!’ he declares. It is good to know that risk at IPC Health is now reduced with Navdeep onboard!
