Volunteer with the Community Care team

Benefits of volunteering

Most of our volunteers will tell you they get more out of volunteering than they give.

Volunteers say they enjoy their role for many reasons, including:

  • having fun while giving back to the community
  • meeting other volunteers with similar interests
  • gaining valuable work experience in a caring and supportive environment

Volunteering opportunities

You can help us by volunteering in the following programs.

  • Volunteer Transport program: transport clients to community activities and health appointments.
  • Meals on Wheels: deliver meals to clients' homes.
  • Social Support programs: help out in programs in the community, in support centres and on bus outings.
  • Community Transport: drive mini buses for our clients.

Frequency

You can volunteer from a few hours a month to several times a week. We can work around your availability and the program you want to join.

Training and support

We provide our volunteers with as much support as we can. This involves:

  • orientation
  • on-the-job training
  • participation in meetings, information and training sessions as required
  • an invitation to attend an annual recognition function
  • reimbursement of some out-of-pocket expenses

Requirements

Before becoming a volunteer, there are a few requirements which you need to meet:

  • Undergo a selection process, including attending an interview, registration and orientation session.
  • Agreeing to all necessary checks, including Police, Working with Children, Vic Roads and reference checks. You may also need to provide a statutory declaration where required.
  • Hold a current comprehensive insurance cover for your vehicle.
  • Commit to volunteer for a minimum of 6 months, including a 3 month review.
