Volunteer FAQ’s

How much time do I need to give?

You can volunteer as much or as little as you would like. We have positions that require different levels of commitment from one-off events, to monthly, fortnightly or weekly volunteering.

We will match you with a program that suits the level of time you can commit. While there are some programs with a minimum commitment, we will let you know before you sign up if that is required.


Are there set days I need to do?

We will work with your schedule and place you in a program that matches your availability.


What hours are available?

It all depends on the volunteering role you do, most run during business hours. Some opportunities do become available in the evenings or weekends.


Can I just turn up when I have spare time?

No – for you, our clients and the organisation to get the most out of your time it is best that someone knows you will be coming.
