We have volunteering opportunities in: 

Holiday programs   
Activ Recreation department provides daytime and overnight activity/holiday programs for adults living with disability. Program volunteers support adults living with disabilities on Saturday outings, weekends and longer holidays travelling locally, intrastate, interstate and on international adventures.

As a Recreation volunteer, you will be assisting Activ customers with social support; engaging and conversing; physical support with personal hygiene; assistance with medications, food choices, clothing selections and money handling. Customers are ratioed according to their level of need – from 1:1 to 1:4. 

Activ Recreation holidays and outings are always group events with a maximum of 20 people.

Another volunteering opportunity is as a program bus driver, driving buses on holidays and outings locally, intrastate or interstate. You must have an MR or HR manual licence. 

Event volunteering
We hold various events across the state that require support from dedicated volunteers. These include the Chevron City to Surf for Activ WA Series, the Hillview Charity Golf Day and the Activ Artspace Exhibition. Roles vary from office support, to volunteering at a water station, to assisting at an art exhibition! Get in touch to see what's coming up!

Activ Foundation provides a range of services to people living with disability including Accommodation, Business Services, Respite, Home and Community Care (HACC) and People Skills and Community (PS&C).

    You may have a passion/hobby you would like to share with our customers. Motorbikes, crochet, scrap-booking, heavy metal? 

    We have over 2,000 customers with unique skills, interests and goals. We look forward to being able to find the right customer to match your volunteering aspirations.
