Thank you for visiting the Act for Kids volunteer opportunity porthole. 

Act for Kids is very grateful for all of the support we receive from our volunteers. Volunteers are a vital part of our team; they’re an extension of our workforce and inspire us daily with their commitment to our work. Without their support, we would not have been able to have changed the lives of thousands of Aussie kids across the past 30 years.

We hope you will join others who have committed their precious time to volunteer to support our vision to help keep kids safe, heal from trauma and lead happy lives.

Please review the list of volunteer opportunities below.

Who are we?

Act for Kids is a for-purpose organisation that delivers evidence-led professional therapy and support services to children and families who have experienced or are at risk of harm.

We operate with 30 centres across Australia, and through prevention, treatment, research, education and advocacy, we have helped hundreds of thousands of children and families since 1988.
