If you’d like to run a workshop or facilitate a group please call us! Sharing your expertise is a wonderful way to volunteer. Our current volunteers run Conversation English, Knitting, Conversation Italian and a Walking Group. Any ideas are welcome.

Volunteer opportunities coming up!

Laneway Lunches, a lunch for people experiencing disadvantage in our community. Volunteers can assist with setting up, serving and cleaning up our lunch room. We will also be growing our own herbs and garnishes so a gardening volunteer is most welcome.

Current Volunteer Opportunities at The Bridge

  • We need a Facilities Assistant. This is the practical person who gets us ready for the day. Setting up a classroom, plugging in audio visual equipment, getting the coffee set up and generally making sure we are in tip top shape for the day. This is a vital part of our day but we have a very small staff, so if you have an hour or two to spare on any morning between 8am and 9am, we’d love to hear from you!
  • We are looking for volunteers for our Laneway Lunches.
  • We are looking for someone to maintain our gardens in and around the centre.
