Volunteers

We welcome Volunteers.
Our Disability Programs aim to support people to reach their full potential. Working together with our friendly Support Workers you can assist our clients to get the most out of life. You don’t need any experience, just a readiness to learn and get involved. Volunteers play a vital and much valued role and are needed for as little as one day a week.  If you are a musician, gardener, a dancer, artist, computer whiz, woodworker, photographer or have a craft you’d love to share, we need you! You are welcome to bring your creative talents, or simply come along and be part of scheduled activities and programs.

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.

How to apply to be a volunteer
Follow the link to complete our  Online volunteer application form. On receipt, we will contact you via email and provide you with a Volunteer Information pack.
  • All volunteers must be 16 years or older
  • All volunteers must provide one reference
  • All volunteers undergo a criminal record check before they commence
We cap the number of volunteers and work experience students to ensure you are supported. If we are at capacity, we will put your details on a waiting list and contact you when there are places.

What happens at Volunteer intake?
Our Volunteers often start in small groups. All volunteers are given training in WHS and Manual Handling. You then have an orientation session at one of our Service areas.

Thank you for your interest in Volunteering at Multitask.
