If you believe in the caring work IWK Health provides, and would like to help us in our mission to help Maritime families lead healthy lives, there are many ways you can help. We thank you in advance for your generosity and thoughtfulness!
Volunteer your time
We are so proud to have so many dedicated and passionate volunteers here at IWK Health and we thank you for considering us as an organization to contribute your time, energy, and compassion. Our history is rooted with volunteer involvement, and volunteers truly make a difference in the lives of our patients, families, and staff.
Become a Patient and Family Partner
Patient and Family Partners have been invaluable in the decisions we make every day as an organization from projects to programs to policy development to way-finding. Being a Patient and Family Partner can mean being a member of a committee, council or project team at the IWK, or it can take place from the comfort of home, whatever time of day, and where ever you are in the Atlantic Provinces.
Be part of You’re in Charge!
You’re in Charge helps build youth’s self-management skills and confidence leading to the management of their chronic health condition and navigating the adult health care system. If you’ve already made the transition to adult care, you can share your experiences with youth and their parents who will be making the same transition soon—giving them the confidence to transition smoothly.
Entertain our patients
If you have a special talent and you’d like to help entertain IWK Health patients, please apply today. All applications will be reviewed for appropriateness of activity, size and ages of the visiting group and scheduling availability, and we’ll do everything possible to accommodate your request.
Join the Transitions of Care Committee
The IWK Health Transitions of Care Program is designed to inform Transition of Care practices at IWK Health, guide the development of the IWK Transition of Care Program, and facilitate increased awareness, effectiveness, and capacity in supporting youth and families as they transition to adult health care.
