Visit us at our outreach office in Heidelberg West

This is an outreach volunteer resource service currently running in Heidelberg West. The main aim of the service is to assist people who are interested in volunteering in their local community to find a volunteer role that is interesting, rewarding and fun.

There are a wide range of volunteer roles available across many different areas such as environment, social support, administration, driving and working with animals.

As well as assisting volunteers to find volunteer roles the service also assists local community groups or not-for-profit organisations to find volunteers.

Local community groups or not-for-profit organisations who are looking for volunteers should register with Volunteers of Banyule so that local enthusiastic volunteers can be found to assist your organisation.

Currently this service runs from Banyule Community Health on 18 February, 3 March, 17 March and 31 March. Drop in to see us between 10am and 12pm.
