Volunteering at Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health
Our people are our greatest asset and our volunteers are vital to the success of the services we offer.
Volunteering offers people the opportunity to share and develop their skills and contribute to their local community. We have volunteer opportunities across a number of programs and projects. All volunteers receive support and relevant training, and play an important role in the work of the organisation. We acknowledge and thank all current and past volunteers for the vital contribution they have made to our programs and operations.
Do you want to become a regular or casual volunteer?
There are two ways to volunteer with us, either sign on as a regular volunteer with us or join our casual volunteer pool. Examples of the kind of work our volunteers do include:
- Assisting with children’s programs
- Helping young adults with a disability
- Building the confidence of social support group participants
- Encouraging older persons to maintain mobility
- Offering driving services
- Leading walking groups
We are hoping to have a pool of social volunteers of all ages (18 years +) who want to invest some of their spare time back into the community. It is a less formal process than becoming a volunteer and the opportunities will be varied and won’t necessarily involve a regular or ongoing commitment. Activities could include helping out at our Communi-tea Van at community events. We’ll let you know what’s coming up, when and where, then you can let us know if you want to be a part of it.
Please note: all volunteers are required to complete a Police Check, Disability Worker Exclusion Scheme (DWES) Check and Working With Children Check.
