Fernlea Community Care could not do the work that it does without our fabulous volunteer teams! Volunteers are an integral part of Fernlea and provide support right across the organisation.
Volunteering with Fernlea can help you to connect and make a difference within your community and to share and learn new skills. You can volunteer in one area, or across a number of areas, the choice is yours. All volunteers receive induction and training including support and recognition. Fernlea is an approved Centrelink ‘Volunteer Work’ provider. If you are ready to apply, please follow the instructions below.
Once we receive your application, you will be contacted to come in and meet with us, where we can discuss your areas of interest, any skills you have to share or want to learn, and just generally what you want to give and get from volunteering with us.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VOLUNTEERING?
Volunteering is a great way to meet others from the local community, and to work with like-minded people. Some volunteers also benefit from learning new skills and gaining experience that may help them secure paid work in the future. Other volunteers get satisfaction from putting their existing experience and skills to good use by donating their talents to our programs. Whatever your motivation, you can be sure that your efforts will be making a real contribution to Fernlea.
