Sacred Heart Mission has a dedicated team of more than 1,000 individual volunteers (plus numerous groups) who donate their time and skills regularly to tackle homelessness in Melbourne. We offer various volunteer positions including at our op shops, meals program and health services. Find out our current vacancies below:

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our 5 minute volunteer program. The program aims to provide "neighbourly" support to our residents who live alone. This role is ideal for people who work full time and don't have several hours to commit to volunteering each week. We do ask for a longer term commitment, however the timing of the volunteering can literally be a "check-in" with the matched resident. It can make a world of difference to our residents to have someone pop in and help with a little task. Come join the team and bring a smile to someone's face.
