Who Can be a Marymead Volunteer?

Anyone can make a great volunteer - single or married people, people with or without children, those out of work, affected by disability, even retirees.

If you are available, compassionate, community-minded and flexible, we would love to speak to you.

Areas to Volunteer

Helping Hand Volunteering

Helping Hand volunteers participate in a specific program or contribute to other regular projects across Marymead. These may or may not be on an ongoing basis.  

Corporate and Skills-Based Volunteering (ACT)

Are you a consultant or in a local business wanting to contribute to the community?  Are you interested in providing one-off advice, consulting, undertaking a project, or providing ongoing services? We rely on organisations with social values to help us with our important work with vulnerable families.

Versatile Volunteering

Can’t commit to long term volunteering but still want to contribute? Perhaps volunteering in a variety of areas appeals to you? Marymead needs a pool of volunteers that can assist with a variety of one-off or short term tasks based on organisational needs or at short notice. Depending on the nature the requirement, these roles may or may not involve working directly with our clients.We’re interested in a variety of backgrounds, skills and ages.

Fundraising

Our two main fundraising arms, these groups help raise much needed funds and spread awareness about the wonderful work we do! As a fundraising volunteer, you would not be expected to undertake on any specific activities directly with clients. All aspects of the Marymead Auxiliary and NEXGEN are managed independently of Marymead.

The Marymead Auxiliary (ACT)

The Marymead Auxiliary has provided fundraising support since 1967.  If you have recently left the workforce, are interested in fundraising and want to meet new people, consider joining the Marymead Auxiliary.

Marymead's NEXGEN (ACT)

Do you want to be a part of a young and fun team who make a real contribution to Marymead? Marymead’s NEXGEN raise valuable funds and awareness of our services within our younger community with events such as Race Day and Cocktails for a Cause.
