Volunteering

Volunteering

Activ volunteers play an integral role in the organisation supporting people living with disability to pursue a better life.

Volunteering is a great way to get involved in your community, make a positive impact, gain work experience, increase your knowledge and skills, make new friends and have fun!

If you would like further information, or think that you have something to offer, please contact our volunteer office at (08) 9387 0495 or email volunteering@activ.asn.au.

We have volunteering opportunities in:

Event volunteering

We hold various events across the state that require support from dedicated volunteers – including the Chevron City to Surf for Activ. 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!

Service volunteering

Activ provides a range of services to people living with disability including accommodation, employment, community, education and training and short term accommodation services. Activ’s service volunteers work alongside our paid staff to support our customers – they are literally an additional pair of hands and eyes and help in a range of activities across the organisation including music, swimming, mens’ shed visits, drum circle, sailing etc.

Companion volunteering

Activ’s companion volunteers give their time and friendship to adults living with disability so that they can participate in activities the rest of us take for granted. Our expectation is that our companion volunteers are long term positions as we take consistency and continuity for our customers seriously.

We have a number of opportunities for companion volunteers across the metropolitan region, from gardening to cooking, outings and classes. We provide orientation to the organisation and training as necessary. These positions would suit Centrelink volunteering obligations or people with a couple of hours to spare each week, and those with an interest and passion for supporting adults living with disability.

We look forward to speaking with you.
