Volunteers

Volunteering with us is so much more than you could imagine. When we say we embrace diversity, we mean it. Age, gender, nationality, appearance or religious beliefs don’t limit your contribution because you’re part of our team.

Imagine what you can do..

Volunteering with us means you create your own opportunities. We will work closely with you to match your skills, interests and time constraints with a role that complements them. Doing so is relatively easy since we offer a wide range of programs and activities across our care and support services along with our mission enterprises. So the only limitation is your imagination.

Why choose us? ​

We understand that volunteering is a big commitment and you probably already have a lot on your plate. So imagine a flexible way of being able to volunteer that complements your work, family commitments, leisure time or education – a way that allows you to truly enjoy your experience. Consequently:

  • We are committed to best practice management of our volunteers. We are focused on continuous improvement with a goal of being a volunteer organisation of choice
  • Our volunteers are an integral part of our team and are included in all we do
  • We set you up for success with all you need to do your job to your best
  • We offer unique and innovative roles based on your skills, values and personal goals
  • We truly respect and appreciate our volunteers’ efforts, and celebrate and reward them whenever we can
  • We are dedicated to strengthening communities through social, cultural and economic integration
  • We believe actions are stronger than words and behave accordingly.

Who can Volunteer?​

Imagine not being limited by your age, gender, nationality or culture. With us it doesn’t matter how young or old you are and you can be from any walk of life. You can be:

  • a young person or school or university student
  • a retiree and older person
  • a newly arrived resident or international student
  • someone with a disability
  • part of a corporate group, local club or association

After all, it’s your compassion and commitment that plays a large part in determining how successful you’ll be.

Naturally, there are some important legislative requirements you’ll need to fulfil. These include the right to work and volunteer in Australia and personal history checks like a National Police Certificate or working with children checks may be a requirement for some roles. That said, most volunteer roles don’t require any previous experience and usually don’t involve a minimum time commitment.

We work closely with you to help find the perfect role for you.

The benefits of volunteering ​

Volunteering is good for the mind, body and soul!

 

Research shows volunteering leads to improved physical and mental health. In fact, there are as many benefits to volunteering as there are motivations for getting involved. And to ensure you make the most of this experience we’ll support you as much as possible.

Volunteering with us will help you:

  • Learn and develop new skills (or sharpen old ones) and widen your career opportunities
  • Share your current skills and passions with those who will appreciate them most
  • Support your educational studies
  • Connect with and give back to your local community
  • Get motivated and enjoy a sense of achievement
  • Make new friends
  • Make someone’s day
  • Enjoy new experiences that help you learn and grow
  • Improve your health, wellbeing and self-esteem
  • Set a challenge for your peers to get involved!
