Volunteer with us

Volunteers bring energy, ideas and community spirit to Banyule Community Health.

Volunteering is a great way to support the local community and share your skills.

Our dedicated volunteers have helped shape Banyule Community Health for almost 50 years. We are a thriving community-led health, welfare and justice service it is today.
Our volunteers offer their time, knowledge, and lived experience to help build our community. With their support, we are able to offer client-focused services to people who are marginalised, disadvantaged and/or vulnerable.

‘I volunteered to be trained as a volunteer group leader because I wanted to connect with the community.’

‘Through volunteering I have made lifelong friendships’

‘I am proud of how far l have come and I love to help others through my volunteer work.’

‘I enjoy volunteering in my local community. I feel like my contribution makes a difference to others and is time well spent


Our volunteers help:

  • Organise social groups and activities
  • Provide administrative support to our staff teams
  • Welcome clients to our social groups and support them in their activities
  • Drive clients to appointments
  • And much, much more!
