Volunteers make communities stronger and at Uniting, they’re at the heart of everything we do.

Every year, hundreds of people give their time and energy to help us provide vital programs and services to the people we support. They play a vital role in empowering individuals and communities to be valued and connected, and we simply couldn’t do it without them.

“I’m so inspired by the people that access services at Uniting. Their tenacity in adverse circumstances and positive attitudes to their challenges forced me to re-evaluate my life and be grateful for the many blessings I have received. Volunteering in the kitchen has also helped me hone my culinary skills – each meal is dependent on donations so preparing dinner is like a mystery box challenge on Masterchef.”

Christina, Family Foundations volunteer since 2014.

Supporting you to make a difference.

If you’re interested in using your skills and experience to make a difference in the community, we’d love to hear from you.

We know that your time is valuable, which is why we’ll take the time to understand what works for you and how we can best support you in your volunteer role.

We host Volunteer Information Sessions every month at our Perth and Merriwa offices. If you’d like to attend a session or learn more about volunteering with Uniting WA, please get in touch.

We use Volaby to manage our volunteer operations.

“I experienced homelessness and was living on the street until I got support from Uniting WA to get back on my feet. This motivated me to volunteer with Uniting and support people going through similar experiences. The team at Uniting have always treated me with dignity, respect and trust and the whole experience has supported my recovery journey immensely, inspiring me to grow and boosting my confidence.”

Adam, Tranby Engagement Hub Volunteer.
