Volunteer at The Bridge Preston & Thornbury assisting the community

Volunteer opportunities

Volunteering at the Bridge is an excellent way to connect with and support your community an opportunity to use and build on existing skills and learn new ones.

Did you know that volunteers save the community sector millions of dollars each year? This saves valuable funding that can be used for direct services such as education and support.

Volunteering also provides the opportunity to gain confidence in a supportive work environment while looking for paid employment.

We’re currently looking for volunteers to support our Laneway Lunch community program, which provides three-course meals to 40-60 people every Friday. Volunteers are required for 2- or 3-hour shifts (any time from 10.30am to 2pm) to assist in food preparation, serving and general clean-up.

Other volunteer opportunities are available for:

  • Classroom assistants (including English, computer, cooking and pottery classes)
  • Admin assistants
  • Childcare assistants
  • Green Team sustainability champions
