Make a contribution with your skills and time

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

Through their dedication, commitment and compassion, volunteers enable us to provide a welcoming and safe environment for the many people who come to the centre seeking comfort and assistance.

In the past year, 477 volunteers contributed 32,704 hours of their time to our community. There is a huge range of positions available in reception and administration, assisting people to make connections in the community, with healthcare and finding work. You can cook for our community lunches, help our fundraising team or connect people with technology.

Lunch volunteering

We’re looking for small groups of volunteers to help deliver community lunches at our Newtown and Auburn centres. 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!
