Companion volunteers - Perth Metro (North, South and East), Geraldton, Bunbury and Busselton 

Activ’s Companion Volunteers give their time and friendship to adults living with disability so that they can provide support to do the things the rest of us take for granted. 
Our customers want to bake cakes, tend to a vegetable garden, catch the bus, walk a dog, learn to knit, visit the library, everyday activities that bring joy to their day. If you have the time and passion to help with one or more of these everyday tasks, we would love to hear from you.
We are looking for volunteers who have at least 2 hours to give on a regular basis (could be weekly; fortnightly; monthly), to provide companionship and social support to our Activ customers. We currently have companion volunteers taking customers to Men’s Sheds; doing craft; knitting; baking and social outings. 

Volunteering can take place at any time during the week to suit the customer and volunteer. However a great number of our opportunities are for after work/early evening time slots and either a morning or afternoon on a weekend. 

We welcome volunteers who want to volunteer with a partner or friend. We also welcome volunteers who have a Centrelink requirement for volunteering as we are a Centrelink Registered organisation.

    We all know how good holidays are! Our Recreation volunteers support our customers on their holidays – locally , nationally and internationally,  giving these adults living with disability the opportunity of experiencing things they would not be able to do without support.

    We provide Recreation volunteers with training prior to going on overnight stays; volunteers  will always be in a group with other volunteers and staff – so there’s plenty of support and experience at hand.  Being a service volunteer would suit someone  who has time during the year for some of the longer holidays,  or on weekends throughout the year.
