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

Kids' Companions Program (ACT)

Kids’ Companions offers a range of group and individual social activities to children, young people and their families impacted by disability. Volunteers are integral to this program. Group activities include Friday evening group activities, monthly community days and school holiday activity days. These groups are facilitated by group leaders and supported by people like you. With one-to-one companions, our kids are paired up with a volunteer for fortnightly or monthly social activities. 

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.  We have a number of corporate projects needing assistance.

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. We’re interested in a variety of backgrounds, skills and ages.

 

Fundraising

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.
