Volunteering Opportunities

 

Anglicare’s Disaster Recovery Program Relies on Volunteers.

By attending a free one day training course you can register to be part of your local team. Volunteers are only called on when our assistance is required in helping to look after disaster victims in an evacuation centre, or other associated activities. Volunteers must be over 18, be reasonably fit and well, prepared to undergo a police check and Working with Children Check, display good common sense and have a heart for helping their community.

Around four training courses are offered each year in different parts of the diocese. Reimbursement of travel costs is available for those travelling to attend an out of area training day.
Once registered as a Disaster Recovery volunteer subsequent opportunities for attending exercise days or joint training with our Community Partners may become available.
There is no cost for training or uniform and resources required when activated.
Find out where your closest training opportunity might be scheduled by checking the website or contacting the Regional Disaster Recovery Coordinator in our Maclean office.

 

Volunteering Opportunities in Migrant Services

Anglicare North Coast Migrant Services operates a range of services for migrants from a refugee background, including the Humanitarian Settlement Service (HSS) and the Complex Case Support Service. Volunteering for Anglicare Migrant Services is a wonderful way to connect with people from different backgrounds and cultures, share your existing skills and acquire new ones, while gaining experience working as part of our professional team. As a Migrant Services Volunteer you will provide practical assistance to newly arrived families from a refugee background in their first six months of settlement, so that they can learn about life in Australia and build confidence to engage in the community independently.
All Migrant Services Volunteers are provided orientation and training. We require our volunteers to have a current Police Check and Working with Children Check.
