The Water Well Project: Volunteer Healthcare Professional Eligibility

Geographic Location

We offer sessions in Victoria (Melbourne, Geelong, Albury-Wodonga), NSW (Sydney) and Tasmania (Hobart, Launceston). We are facilitating sessions face-to-face with some online sessions when needed. Therefore, our preference is for volunteers to be located in these regions.

If you are located outside of our operating locations and would like to join our volunteer team, please contact us at prior to signing up for induction to discuss this further.

Professional credentials

We welcome actively practicing AHPRA registered health professionals of the following disciplines.  Please be prepared to provide evidence of your AHPRA registration.

  • Medical
  • Nursing and Midwifery
  • Paramedicine
  • Pharmacy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Osteopathy
  • Psychology

Final year students of all above professions are also invited to join our volunteer team. You will be required to provide evidence of enrolment and final year status from your university.

All volunteers including final year students will require an active Working with Children Check, or their States equivalent*, evidence of your personal professional indemnity insurance, and evidence of your COVID-19 vaccination status.

Those individuals who are not eligible to facilitate health education sessions are able to volunteer for other roles on The Water Well Project committees which are not involved in the facilitation of health education sessions.
