Programs for Volunteers

‘B2V’  Bridge to Volunteering

B2V is an information session for people new to volunteering, or those interested in learning more -with no obligation.
Run on the first Tuesday of each month from 10am to 11.30ish… this session will help prepare you for volunteering and provide a basic understanding of the obligations and rights you have as a volunteer!  Please contact VSW to register for the next B2V session.

Enhancing Access  (which includes Enhancing Access for Culturally & Linguistically Diverse Groups)

The Enhancing Access Program  (EA) is a volunteer program run for people with barriers to volunteering or for those who feel they need a more supportive environment to try volunteering.  This includes people with disabilities, culturally and linguistically diverse people and anyone who is a bit apprehensive about volunteering.  Debra McIlraith, our VSW Coordinator, escorts the participants on trips to various not-for-profit organisations to experience volunteering hands in this wonderful ‘taste tests’ in volunteering.  Many previous participants are now actively engaged in volunteering in the community. For more information contact us.
