Thank you for your interest in volunteering with SSI.

SSI’s volunteers are a diverse, dedicated and welcoming group of people who are eager to get involved in their community to assist SSI with wide range of activities and projects to meet our goals and objectives. 

Our volunteers allow us to add greater depth, range and scope to our programs and services. Some of our programs wouldn't exist without them!

Our volunteers work with asylum seekers, refugees and migrants, families and people living with disability and are involved in supporting and running employment pathway programs, community engagement activities and program and company administrative, communication and marketing support.

To apply for an SSI volunteer role you must be 18 years or over, and be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

Thank you for you ongoing support!


About SSI

SSI is a community organisation and social business that supports newcomers and other Australians to achieve their full potential. We work with all people who have experienced vulnerability, including refugees, people seeking asylum and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities, to build capacity and enable them to overcome inequality.

SSI draws on its expertise and experience to advocate for the people and communities it serves. Through the work we do, we empower people to change their lives. Through our advocacy and representation, we influence ideas and policy.

From a staff of one in April 2011, SSI now employs over 800 employees (including 180 bilingual guides) and over 100 volunteers and students. In 2018, SSI merged with Access Community Services. We now operate locally, nationally and internationally, with offices in metro and regional Queensland, NSW and Victoria.
