Volunteer at Connect

Volunteering is at the heart of Connect Village Hub: we are a community of people who are happy to help each other out and donate time and skills.

Volunteering is a great way to get to know your neighbours, develop relationships, find a purpose and be part of something bigger. It's even more valuable for those who want to age well in community. 

As listed below, there are a few ways you can volunteer with the Village Hub or at Connect Victoria Park.

At different times, we may need help with specific tasks, so we encourage you to get in touch to know more. We would love to hear about the skills and expertise you may be able to contribute. 

Volunteers join as Friends of the Village Hub, receive and review our volunteer policy and procedures, and attend a short induction. We are required to ask for a National Police Clearance and offer volunteer insurance, and this will be covered by your yearly membership fee of $20. 

If you are already a member of the Village Hub, you don't need to sign up as a Friend or pay anything extra, just get in touch.

Neighbour to neighbour volunteer

The Village Hub facilitates genuine connections between neighbours.

Through our Neighbour-to-Neighbour volunteer program, we match Village Hub members who need help with small tasks around the house or garden with other members or volunteers who are able to help.

Community members can join as Friends of the Village Hub and volunteer to help our members.

At the 
Village Hub

The Village Hub volunteer

Run by members for members, the Village Hub will be more successful as more members contribute as fully as they are able to.

Members are encouraged to suggest, coordinate and run activities and groups with other members.

The Village Hub also works with volunteers from the community, who help with research, promotion, IT and tech support.

At Connect's Community Kitchen

Community kitchen volunteer

We have commercial kitchen facilities at The Homestead, and our kitchen coordinator works closely with volunteers to prepare and serve lunch to Village Hub members every Tuesday.

Tuesdays shifts at the kitchen run from 8.30am to 1.30pm, and you get a free lunch!

Kitchen volunteers also help with special events or bake treats for members' activities and groups. 

At Connect’s Housing Units

Housing volunteer

There is always a variety of maintenance tasks to help with around Connect Victoria Park's housing units, located on Mackie and Cargill Streets, as well as at The Homestead community centre.  

We also welcome volunteers who want to get active outdoors and help us make the grounds around our housing units pretty and productive.
