Volunteer positions

Volunteer opportunities are regularly advertised on our jobs board so you can see what positions we are currently recruiting for. Most of our volunteer positions require you to work within business hours, from Monday to Friday.

Lunch volunteering

We’re looking for groups of 4 – 6 friends to help cook and serve community lunches at our Newtown and Auburn centres to around 40 people seeking asylum. Community lunches create opportunities for our clients to be more connected to their wider community and socialise with others while accessing a nutritious meal. And they’re fun!

Corporate volunteering

Volunteering as an organisation makes an impact for people seeking asylum and brings your team together. Get in touch to find out more.
