Our dedicated team of volunteers are critical in the work we do to help empower vulnerable families, young people and individuals to break down barriers and achieve improved social and economic outcomes.
Our volunteers come from all walks to life and give their time, skills and experience to help us respond to the increasing demand for our services. The roles they play are varied, assisting with emergency relief, helping out with homework clubs, school holiday programs and learning to drive programs, as well as providing employment and youth mentoring, intake assessments and loan support.

Meet David who is helping young people in the community get behind the wheel and achieve independence
Local volunteer David started his volunteering career with us in the L2P program back in 2010.
The L2P program matches young learner drivers in need of assistance with volunteer mentor drivers who assist them with obtaining their required minimum 120 hours of supervised driving experience. The program offers volunteer mentor driver training and access to fully licenced and insured vehicles.
Over his time as a volunteer with the program, David has individually mentored dozens of learner drivers and helped them to successfully obtain their probationary license.
