We are extremely grateful to our growing team of volunteers who come from many different walks of life to offer their time, skills and expertise. In 2018, 1,013 individuals and 138 groups contributed a total of 80,000 hours to Sacred Heart Mission.

Corporate volunteers contribute significantly to Sacred Heart Mission's work and are a vital part of our volunteer program. Companies who regularly volunteer with us include NAB, Energy Australia, RACV, CPA Australia and many more. 

Volunteers assist in a range of capacities including food preparation and meal service in the Dining Hall, customer service and stock management in our op shops and the provision of pro bono professional services through skilled volunteering.

Corporate volunteering is a rewarding and enjoyable way for businesses to contribute to the community and enhance their corporate social responsibility. The opportunity provides an enjoyable team building activity and a chance to better understand the issues relating to homelessness and disadvantage. Our corporate volunteers rate the experience as rich and rewarding and leave feeling they have made a meaningful contribution to the community and those in need. 

Sacred Heart Mission relies on fundraising and social enterprise to fund 70 per cent of our volunteer program costs and 15 per cent of our service delivery. To support us in continuing to deliver our volunteer program, we ask our corporate partners to make a contribution to the cost of running it when they are part of the experience.


"NAB employees have been volunteering with Sacred Heart Mission since 2007 and in this time have undertaken over 21,000 hours volunteering. Sacred Heart Mission is an amazing organisation that provides a meaningful volunteering experience to our employees. The activities are professionally run and our employees are always very positive about their experience and many will volunteer again to keep supporting the Mission’s important work in the community." - Matt from National Australia Bank

“An incredibly inspiring place where the workplace culture was magnificently created by the hands-on CEO. [...] Volunteers are treated fantastically. Totally loved the experience.” - a staff member from the University of Melbourne
