More than 6 million Australians make a difference by volunteering each year, doing a wide range of tasks for a wide range of volunteer involving organisations. People volunteer for many reasons and in many different ways. Some use volunteering as way to gain new skills or add to their CV. Others use it as a way to meet new people, make new friends or try something new. Making a difference to the community and having a sense of purpose are also popular reasons for volunteering. Whatever your own personal reason is for volunteering, rest assured it is a two way exchange – you give but you also gain.
Join team and make huge change happen around the Australia and internationally.
Take a look at our volunteering opportunities, from Volunteer roles to our Speaker Network. Whatever you do, you'll be helping bring humane and compassionate policies for people seeking safety in Australia and around the globe. While we cannot predict the wars, conflicts and oppressive regimes that will force people to seek asylum, we can work to ensure that anyone who arrives seeking sanctuary finds the safety and support they deserve, so they can start to rebuild their lives with dignity.
