Welcoming the involvement of volunteers.

We value volunteers!

Volunteers are the essence of a vital and dynamic community and provide a unique role in building the community’s capacity and resilience.

The support of volunteers is a huge factor in the success and delivery of many of Communify’s programs. In fact, we just couldn’t do without our wonderful volunteers who enhance and extend our service provision to clients and the community.

Volunteering is a very rewarding way to give something back to the community and to know you are making a difference.

We may not have a volunteer role for you straight away but by registering your details you’ll be in the loop when a volunteer vacancy comes up.

Please note that you will need to provide your Covid-19 vaccination certificate to volunteer with us. If you’d like to chat about volunteering or if you’d like to start a community project please contact us on 3510 2750 or email

Whether it is important to you to ‘give back’, get involved, gain experience or to develop as a person, volunteering offers many benefits in appreciation for the gift of your time and expertise.

Volunteering

  • is a great way to make new friends and contacts
  • creates opportunities for strengthening connections and forming closer ties within your community
  • keeps you mentally and physically active
  • will provide you with useful work experience and skills
  • provides you with an opportunity to feel needed and valued
