Who can volunteer?

Our volunteers are inspired by the resilience of children. They commit their time to support our op shops, events, programs and offices throughout Australia. We couldn’t do the work we do without them.

Our volunteers range from 18 to 98 years old. They come from all different backgrounds and bring diverse skill sets to our organisation. We value the support of every single one of our volunteers and we are always looking for new volunteers to help build our community.
