Volunteer with us

The contribution of volunteers in our organisation is significant and we are always looking for people who are willing to give back to the community in which they live. Without the generous support of our volunteers we would be unable to meet the continued growth in the services we provide to our community.

I am glad I belong to this fabulous organisation. It is most rewarding

Connect Health & Community Volunteer feedback


Volunteering has big benefits

It is a great way to make new connections, learn new or use current skills and support the important work we do providing quality programs and services to the community. We aim to make volunteering a positive experience for all. Most volunteers will tell you they get as much out of volunteering as they give.  People are motivated to volunteer for a variety of reasons such as they wish to:

  • Participate in their community
  • Have fun
  • Stay active
  • Learn new skills
  • Maintain existing skills
  • Meet people/make new friends               
  • Get out of the house
  • Build self confidence
  • Be of service
  • Be needed
  • Pursue a hobby or special interest
  • Support a cause they believe in

How much time is required?

Volunteering can be a wonderful and rewarding experience. We ask our volunteers to commit to at least one year of volunteering. The amount of time you give will depend on the time you have available and the type of volunteering role you are interested in.

If you’d like to be part of the Connect Health & Community Volunteer Team please call: 9575 5312
