You can make a difference!

Volunteering is a choice made by you to help your community.

It's all about supporting nonprofits and community groups by willingly giving your time, skills and enthusiasm to become involved and take action on issues that are important to you.

Choose a role that's a good match for you

Here are a few questions you should consider:

  • What are my motivations for volunteering?
  • Is there a cause that's close to my heart?
  • What skills do I want to contribute or learn?
  • How much time can I commit?

There are many externalities that demand our attention and pull us in different directions. Finding a cause, group or organisation that you're passionate about will enable you to give more of yourself and be the change you want to see in the world – all change starts with you.


What areas can you volunteer in?

There are so many ways you can choose to volunteer.

You can help in the arts, sports, schools, aged care, social support, conservation, community safety or emergency services. You can take action on climate change, help people experiencing homelessness, disadvantaged children, or refugees. You can get involved in gender equality, democracy, social justice, stopping racism or animal welfare.

You can use or develop your skills in research, administration, tutoring, marketing, retail, management, technology, and much more.

There are one off events, short-term projects, long-term roles and even micro volunteering.

Whichever opportunity you choose, you'll be strengthening communities and enriching your personal and professional development.
