Volunteering

Hume Volunteer Gateway offers a range of support and opportunities for volunteers and volunteer organisations, to help find and support volunteering.

Millions of Australians volunteer in their communities each year and for many different reasons. No matter what the reason is, volunteering can be highly rewarding, fun and suitable for all ages and backgrounds.

The many benefits of volunteering include:

  • Learning new skills
  • Meeting people and making new friends
  • Boosting employment and education prospects
  • Helping others and making a difference in your community
  • Increasing confidence and improving wellbeing
  • Extending your network and community knowledge.

Volunteering helping people, changing lives. There are many ways you can help in your community. Browse and view a range of volunteering opportunities online and apply directly with the community organisation by completing their application form.
