How to Volunteer at Eldercare

We take volunteering seriously and value the contribution that volunteers make.  In order to ensure that volunteers are placed in the right area and have a positive experience there is a four step process to becoming a volunteer:

  1. Have a look at the volunteer roles and choose one of the 13 residential care facilities where you will be volunteering.  You are then invited to complete our online application form to Register Your Interest.
  2. Eldercare will contact you for an interview with staff.
  3. If there is a position available that suits you and the residential site then you will be invited to attend an Orientation and Induction session.
  4. All volunteers are provided with training prior to, and throughout their involvement with Eldercare.

Please note that all volunteers will be asked to provide a Police Clearance Certificate and sign a statutory declaration.

To get involved, complete an online application form or phone the Eldercare Program Coordinator for Volunteers, Jennifer Dunkley on (08) 8291 1030.
