Volunteer Positions

Art Coordinator (vacancies)

Art Coordinators are volunteers who independently structure and facilitate the on-site art classes, tailoring them to the different abilities of the clients. They arrive 15 minutes prior to the session to set up and then, with staff support, direct groups of three to eight clients through the day’s chosen art task. The class finishes at 12.15pm, followed by 15 minutes of pack up and debriefing.

Cooking Class Instructor (vacancies)

Cooking Class Instructors are volunteers who independently structure and lead the small on-site cooking sessions. They support clients in learning how to do the tasks themselves, act as a second pair of eyes and assist when tasks are too difficult (e.g. peeling onions). Following completion of the cooking, volunteers and clients tidy up the kitchen space and discuss the next week’s task.

Outing Support – Cafe (vacancies)

For clients who live on-site, we provide a range of social activities, one being fortnightly cafe outings. Every second Tuesday from 11am to 12.30pm, a small group walk five to ten minutes to a local cafe for a hot drink and/or slice.

Volunteers provide support to staff and clients on these outings. Volunteers aid the group on their way to and from the cafe by walking next to an unsteady client, pushing a wheelchair or trailing behind, ensuring everyone reaches the location safely. Once at the cafe, volunteers assist clients with collecting their drinks and facilitate conversation.
