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.  

Covid-Safe volunteering

Sacred Heart Mission has introduced a policy of mandatory COVID-19 vaccination for all staff, volunteers, and contractors within our organisation. This decision aligns with the Victorian Government’s Public Health Orders requiring all residential aged care workers and authorised workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19, and the Mission has taken a policy position to extend this to all staff, volunteers, and contractors.

To keep everyone safe, you must receive your second dose by 26 November for most programs and provide evidence of your vaccination, if you want to volunteer with us.
