Volunteering opportunities at Sacred Heart Mission

Our current vacancies

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.

Please note: We appreciate your interest in volunteering with us. Unfortunately, we currently don't offer any volunteer opportunities due to Melbourne's 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 need 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.

If your preferred volunteering role is not on the list, please make a donation to our services so we can continue to support those who need our help more than ever.
