If you are looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of other people living with a stoma, join the QLD Stoma Association as a volunteer! Volunteering is a great way to get to other like minded people while making an invaluable community contribution at the same time.

Our volunteers provide invaluable assistance to the association by doing a variety of light warehouse duties which may include breaking down pallet deliveries, repacking orders for collection or dispatch, and preparing consignments for collection by Australia Post. Volunteers also provide reception duties, and other administrative duties or projects as required from time to time.
