Volunteer with Peer Connection

The Peer Connection Program is delivered by volunteers who have had a personal experience of gambling harm and recovery.

Being a Peer Connection volunteer has multiple benefits:

  • Use your lived experience of gambling harm to help others
  • Enhance your own wellbeing and the wellbeing of the people you support
  • Learn new skills
  • Become part of a supportive volunteer team.

To become a Peer Connection volunteer you:

  • Have successfully recovered from a gambling problem or have dealt with the impacts of someone else’s gambling
  • Have excellent listening and communication skills
  • Are non-judgemental and able to empathise with others
  • Are able to work a weekly or fortnightly shift (about 3 hours – day or evening).
  • Can commit for a minimum of one year

Volunteers also have to be willing to obtain a police check.
