Volunteer

Volunteers are an important addition to our team assisting us to provide opportunities for the people we support that may otherwise be difficult to achieve.

You can volunteer as much or as little as you would like. We have positions that require different levels of commitment from one-off events, to monthly, fortnightly or weekly volunteering. We will match you with a program that suits the level of time you can commit. While there are some programs with a minimum commitment, we will let you know before you join us of what is required. You might have a skill or profession that may be of assistance to help us support our clients either directly or indirectly?  Please contact us to discuss.

SGSCC is based in Jannali, NSW and we have venues in other locations. However you are not limited to volunteering at our centres as many of our activities are accessing the community in all it has to offer.

Staff and volunteres at SGSCC disAbility come to us with a wide range of skills and backgrounds and through various channels. What sets them apart is their passion for supporting and empowering people with a disability to make choices and live the lives they want.

Work Experience & Students

SGSCC disAbility welcomes students from High Schools and Vocational Education or University.

Ask your High School about volunteering for us; various school programs are in existence. Young or adult students from our Registered Training Organisation section often do a work placement with us too but you don’t have to be enrolled in a course at SGSCC to do work experience or volunteer.

Many students from university and vocational areas apply for volunteer roles to gain experience outside their placement hours. If you want to further your education and find experience in your chosen field of study or just want to give something back to your community contact us to discuss or for more information please contact SGSCC disAbility on 02 8543 7429 or email disability@sgscc.edu.au
