About this opportunity

Life Stream Australia is very excited to see demand for our programs continue to grow and volunteerism expanding into new areas within our Organisation. This continued success has resulted in demand for our services stretched to capacity.

In order to meet the demand and best support our Members, we need more enthusiastic, outgoing and committed Volunteers to join our team in the Brisbane area.

Volunteers provide the support required to enable members to participate in their chosen program activities, providing valuable respite to their carers.

The range of programs & activities offered to members is diverse, varied and constantly evolving, meaning that as a volunteer you also fully benefit from the experiences including;

• Domestic and International Holidays & Cruises;
• Weekend Getaways & Day Trips (theme parks & attractions, beach & BBQ trips to Sunshine/Gold Coast & National Parks);
• Social sporting activities (cricket, rugby, soccer games etc.);
• Weekly Fitness sessions, Sports & Leisure programs;
• Craft, movie outings, ten pin bowling, social dinners and much more.

Currently we are seeking people who have the capability to be drivers, when needed on the programs that we provide.

There is no cost at all to Volunteer with us – All activity expenses are covered by Life Stream (eg travel expenses, meals, tickets, entry etc)
You get the opportunity to make a difference in the life of people with a disability – directly and indirectly. You will get to go to new places, meet new people, have a heap of fun and make a real difference.

Don’t hesitate – contact us - we can't wait to hear from you. The more people that get involved – the more people we can support.

We look forward to hearing from you.
