Knowledge, experience, and skill make a good volunteer. A heart with the right attitude and willingness to help makes a GREAT volunteer.

You don’t need to be an expert to be a CAC volunteer. Each and every one of our volunteers is a valued and important asset to CAC. Regardless of whether you can only contribute a few hours or if you’re there every day, we treasure your effort and time. 

Our volunteers come from a range of trades and professions. Many volunteers are retirees, some are college and university students. Our volunteers come from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and some can speak a second or even a third language.

Volunteer Types

Anyone can become a CAC volunteer, although for some duties there are specific requirements and qualifications. For example, if you volunteer as a driver you will need to have a valid Australia license. If you volunteer at a community event or outing helper, you will need to have a certain level of fitness and physical ability.

CAC also calls upon the corporate sector for specific community events. This allows various companies to participate in activities that help to improve team building, staff leadership, and management skills, and to attract quality staff who care about other people and the communities in which they work.
