Volunteering opportunities

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.

We offer various volunteer positions across our services. 

Please note: We appreciate your interest in volunteering with us. Currently we have an ongoing need for volunteers in our op shops and some of our other programs.

Our Women's House volunteering and our Meals Program are fully booked and we have a wait list for these programs, as such we are not taking any volunteers in these two programs.

Students interested in completing placement hours as part of their coursework need to apply via the student placement portal.

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.
