Top reasons to start volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to try new experiences and get out into the community. And it’s also an ideal place to start when looking for work.

Our Community Programs team support many individuals to do a range of volunteering activities that suit their interests. Participants can learn about their local community, help keep our environment tidy, and help others in need.

If you’ve never considered volunteering before, take a look at these great reasons why you should give it a go!

Give back

Helping others or the environment is a rich and rewarding experience.

Often, the benefits keep on giving long after the activity is complete. No matter how small the task, volunteering can have a ripple effect and make a real positive change on someone else’s life.

Something for everybody

There’s plenty of community groups, causes, and events happening around Perth – you just need to know what you’re looking for.

Whether it’s a one-off event or an ongoing commitment, you can choose something that suits your schedule and interests.

Gain firsthand experience

Ever wondered what it’s like to do conservation work, or help run a public event? By volunteering you can try out new experiences in a supported environment and see what suits you best.

If you’re a school leaver, it’s a great way to gain real knowledge about the workplace and what’s expected. Here’s some info about our Workplace Learning program.

Get involved

If you’re looking to meet people and make new friends, then this is the perfect place to start. Our team will be there for you as you navigate a new environment and meet others with similar interests. You will also learn more about your local community.

We support a number of participants like Branko to do volunteering, with great results. If you have an activity you’d like to explore, we can help you find opportunities in your local area, and provide ongoing support during the activity.
