Volunteers play a crucial role at Southern Cross Care (Vic). The time they give and the friendship they provide improve the quality of life for all residents and clients. We also have volunteers who provide corporate volunteering by assisting the Volunteer program or working within our departments to give and gain business experience.

Every year, hundreds of people give their time to provide more social and recreational options for our residents and clients.

These can be as diverse as creating a herb and vegetable garden for residents, conducting tai chi classes, or taking a client on a shopping trip.

You can choose activities that best suit your interests and available time. Or offer to spend time just talking to people and keeping them company; volunteering can be as straightforward as that.

Being a volunteer is rewarding

Volunteering at Southern Cross Care (Vic) brings many rewards, including keeping active, learning new skills and exploring potential career opportunities. Most of all, it’s about making a difference in people’s lives.

We support our volunteers in numerous ways, including quality in-house training, fun activities and events, and an annual Thanksgiving service. To see what volunteering opportunities are currently available, check our dedicated volunteer website.
