Our commitment to dedicated care is only possible thanks to our passionate volunteers, whose selfless work is a labour of love that brightens our patients’ days.

If you have the heart to help, a desire to do good and a few hours to spare, we’d love to welcome you on board.

With 18 different patient-facing and non patient-facing volunteer groups, there are many ways for you to give with greater impact.

We welcome volunteering enquiries at volunteer@doverpark.sg.
