Investing in you
We’re growing into new areas and locations all the time. There are always opportunities for volunteers to move from donating their time and skills to starting work on a new paid role or project.
People at Lifely are deeply curious. That’s why we have ongoing learning opportunities like free training and workshops for our volunteers.
Did you know that your training contributes to unit CHCVOL001 Be An Effective Volunteer which can be put towards a Certificate III in Individual Support or Certificate IV in Disability from Wodonga TAFE.
When you work with amazing people, it’s not hard to have a good time. From trivia nights to volunteer appreciation events and participant activities, there’s no shortage of fun stuff to get involved in at Lifely.
Embracing the real you
You deserve a volunteer environment that values you for who you really are, a place free from discrimination and harassment.
We know that a cornerstone of our success is the diversity of thought, skills and experience of our team members and volunteers. We encourage people from all backgrounds to apply to join the volunteering team and to help broaden our perspectives in everything we do.
You don’t need any experience or qualifications to join our volunteer team. We will support and teach you every step of the way.
However, we do work with vulnerable people and children, so we require our volunteers to complete some paperwork and checks, including:
- Aged 15 or older with a valid ID
- Working With Children’s Check (volunteer)
- NDIS Worker Screening Check (volunteer)
- NDIS Worker Orientation Module
