Volunteers play a pivotal role in creating connected, diverse, and inclusive communities

Volunteers provide a vital service for local groups, charities and small community organisations to deliver high-quality services to their constituents. They connect people and communities and help people re-engage with their lives after a set-back. They also ensure our major events and festivals run smoothly and can be enjoyed by everyone in the community.

There are many different types of volunteer opportunities, browse through the current list to find one that’s right for you.

Did you know 86% of organisations say they need more volunteers? Perhaps the perfect opportunity is out there, and you just haven’t heard about it yet!

If you love the energy of festivals and events, then event volunteering may be perfect for you. Get a backstage pass to all the action and see what it takes to make some of Canberra’s biggest festivals and events great!

The difference you can make to a disaster-affected family, community group, business or individual – even years after an extreme weather event – is immeasurable.

Sometimes we all need a little help. If there’s an issue stopping you from volunteering, we’re here to assist. Our Inclusive Volunteering Program is designed to help find rewarding volunteering opportunities for people experiencing barriers to volunteering.

Our free workshop gives you a complete understanding of what is involved in volunteering
