Volunteer with "Buddies of NCCS"

You probably know that cancer is among the leading causes of deaths in Singapore. It is so common that you and I are likely to know someone distant or close, who has been affected by this disease.

But you can help those affected. Are you a positive individual or a group of individuals, who is looking to make a difference to the lives of cancer patients? Or do you want to contribute your time and skills for a meaningful cause? Volunteer with NCCS! Be a member of the “Buddies of NCCS”, supporting our patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals in the fight against cancer.

How you can help

At the NCCS, volunteers are among our close partners, who support our work and our delivery. They help to relieve some of the pain and distress for the patients and their care-givers, and offer hope for the day when we can be cancer-free.

Opportunities to help through volunteerism are available in different areas ranging from Awareness to Care. The programmes are aligned to support our Common Purpose to offer our patients hope by having the best people, providing the best care, and doing the best research.

We look forward to welcome you on board and participate in one of our programmes that best suits your personality, interests or capitalises on your talents and skills.
