Sacred Heart Mission operates 365 days of the year and requires the assistance of dedicated volunteers who provide much-needed support to our programs. Voluntary work is a rewarding activity where you can connect with like-minded people, develop your skills and help to improve the quality of life for all involved. 

We offer various volunteer positions including work in our op shops, meals program, Women’s Services, Aged Care, accommodation sites and health services. The majority of volunteer shifts are during business hours and at this point we do not have any current opportunities for volunteering in the evening. We often look to our ‘volunteer army’ for assistance during holiday periods and weekends, especially in our op shops.  

Please note: We appreciate your interest in volunteering with us. Unfortunately, we have a limited number of volunteer opportunities due to Melbourne's current lockdown. Please check our website again after the restrictions are lifted or follow us on Facebook and Instagram for any updates.

If you already volunteer with us and you are rostered for shifts at our Dining Hall, you will receive a certified permit letter from us. In accordance with Victoria's Coronavirus restrictions, you are required to carry the permit with you when volunteering with us and when travelling for volunteering, starting from Tuesday, 17 August 11.59pm.
