Agency/Affiliate Membership Information

VSW is able to make regular referrals to community organisations as we have many enquiries from volunteers in Bunbury and in the surrounding areas on a regular basis. By becoming a member of Volunteer South West we can make referrals of any interested person to your organisation. It is then the responsibility of your organisation to determine the suitability and placement of a volunteer. We will be able to give advice on the recruitment and management of volunteers if you require this and provide you with the necessary guidelines.
