Our Organisation

Compassionate Hearts on the Bellarine (CHoB) is an incorporated not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, including the Committee of Management, and is dependent on grants and donations for financial support.

Our Volunteer Coordinator is responsible for linking clients and volunteers, assessing the needs of the client, assigning an appropriate volunteer, for supporting volunteers in their roles and is the nexus between the Palliative Care staff of Bellarine Community Health(BCH), Doctors’ Clinics, private referrals and our CHoB volunteers.

Currently we work closely with BCH who have supported the organisation since our inception.  As well as being represented on the Committee of CHoB, BCH provides invaluable administrative assistance and use of meeting spaces. Many of our clients are referred to us by the Palliative Care staff of BCH.
