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. 

We appreciate your continued interest in volunteering with us; but due to the coronavirus outbreak we have reduced our volunteer recruitment for now. Please note that only certain programs are recruiting at this stage. If your preferred program is not on the list, we encourage you to make a donation to our services so we can continue to support our most vulnerable who need our help more than ever.
