Volunteer with Australia’s oldest charity

We couldn't do it without you

Our volunteers are the heart of what we do. You help us reach more people in more places.

A small contribution can make a big difference in your community, and it’s good for you too. Lending a helping hand helps stay involved in the community, meet new people, develop new skills or keep old ones sharp.

Volunteering opportunities can be short-term or ongoing across:

  • Client services volunteering
  • Professional services volunteering
  • Corporate volunteering


Client services volunteering

Across NSW and Queensland, volunteers support:

  • Children and families: Get involved at an early years centre or provide support for young mums
  • Ageing Australians: Lend a hand with meal delivery or raise spirits with a home visit
  • Disability: Pitch in on community events and provide social support
  • Youth: Act as a mentor or make friends to support foster kids.

Interested in applying to volunteer in our client services? Get in touch or call 1800 236 762.


Professional services volunteering

When pro-bono projects arise, we look for assistance across writing, HR, legal, marketing, finance, research and other professional services.

We advertise all our professional services volunteering opportunities on SEEK Volunteer, Go Volunteer and other volunteer and industry platforms.

Ask us about professional services volunteering - send an enquiry or call us on 1800 236 762.


Corporate volunteering

Does your workplace have a ‘volunteer day’ program? Spend it with us. If it doesn’t? Let’s set one up.

Teams of corporate volunteers have pitched in to maintain gardens, take older people on outings and host parties for kids in need.

For workplaces short on time, corporate fundraising is a great option. Bake a cake, auction off a day of leave, or ask us for ideas on raising funds for Australia’s first charity.
