There are so many different ways to volunteer and we appreciate every person who gives their time to help us save lives.

Thiess Digs Deep for Volunteers

Volunteer Now and Save Local Lives

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service has joined forces with mining services provider Thiess in a proactive recruitment program designed to reengage with volunteers after a two-year COVID hiatus.

Thiess’ support of the volunteer recruitment campaign will allow the service to attract existing volunteers back, encourage new volunteers to join their local support group and deliver a volunteer conference, aimed at developing and recognising volunteering excellence in the Hunter.

Over 1000 supporters

Red Shirts at the heart of our Service.

There are more than 1000 people, 37 Support Groups and 7 Op Shops throughout Northern NSW who volunteer in support of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

Providing a vital emergency service for our community would not be possible without the generous support of volunteers who dedicate their time at local events, shopping centres, op shops, cooking up a storm at sporting grounds and hardware stores, running raffles, collecting donations tins and providing their professional expertise and time free of charge.

There are so many different ways to volunteer and we appreciate every person who gives their time to help us save lives.
