What do you get out of it?
You can gain personal satisfaction, develop social networks, learn new skills, gain work experience and maintain existing skills.
Before you commit to study a Certificate III or IV in Community or Disability services, why not volunteer first and see if this is the sector for you? We also welcome work placement students.
- Share your skills and creativity
- Be supported by a fabulous team
- Develop your social skills and make friends
- Get experience and training that can help lead to paid employment
Some of our past volunteers have gone on to join us as paid employees. However, there is no guarantee of paid employment if you volunteer with us.
When would I be volunteering?
We will work with you to try to find days and times to suit your availability, skills and interests.
Where would I work?
There’s a lot of variety in Volunteer Support Work. No day is ever the same. What you do depends on the needs of the client and what they want to do with their day.
Work may be in Day Services, Business Services, Residential Services, or anywhere in the community.
