Current volunteering opportunities

Sacred Heart Mission has a dedicated team of more than 1,000 individual volunteers (plus numerous groups) who generously donate their time and skills across the organisation.

We are committed to providing volunteering opportunities for all people regardless of age, gender, cultural background, disability, or sexual orientation. We recognise the strength and value in diversity, and actively foster an inclusive community. People who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander are strongly encouraged to apply.

Sacred Heart Mission Covid 19 vaccinations are no longer required for Op Shop volunteers, all other programs volunteers still require 3 vaccinations. This means that staff, volunteers, and contractors within our organisation aged 18 years and order must have had at least 3 vaccinations against COVID-19, or have a medical or special exemption, in order to work at Sacred Heart Mission programs and services excluding our Op Shops. 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 staff, volunteers, and contractors in all volunteer programs, with the exception of our Op Shops.
