From time to time we need volunteers to help with our programs.  Our emergency relief volunteers help clients by providing a confidential consultation, and then using our resources and referrals to provide the best assistance possible. Emergency relief volunteers are provided with training and support to be able to provide the service. We have volunteers helping at our op shop for either half day shifts or for the full day.  We also have volunteers helping at our drop in centre catering to patrons with food and conversations.

We have many volunteer roles in our organisation, such as directly assisting clients, helping with our school breakfast program and making lunches in our drop in centre. Our organisation runs on Christian values, and we welcome everybody.

If you would like to volunteer for this program please call us on 03 9754 7777, or email
