Australians are known for being generous and having a spirit and willingness to lend a hand.
Did you know that one in four people in Australia do some kind of volunteer work?

The Salvation Army has been able to continue our good work because of ordinary Australians giving their time to help us help others.

Why Volunteer?

When you volunteer for The Salvation Army, you offer a hand of support to someone at their greatest point of need. Many of our past clients then go on to become volunteers themselves because of the people that helped them in their time of need.

Volunteering for the Salvos will give you new skills, satisfaction, work experience, new friends and an enjoyable time!
