Volunteer With Us

We are so grateful for the difference our volunteers make and we simply cannot survive without their contribution.

Our volunteers are of all ages and backgrounds and we are thrilled when they say how they enjoy giving back, that volunteering gives them purpose and they love meeting new people and making firm friends.

Whether it is offering professional experience or gaining new skills on the job, our volunteers are always willing to help.

We have many opportunities available and welcome new additions to our family

Why volunteer?

  • Individual volunteers must be able to work independently. If you require a support worker or need guidance when completing tasks, please contact Michelle to discuss any issues. 
  • Businesses. We welcome staff groups of up to 20 people to join our team for a day of volunteering. (This can also be a great team building exercise!). Group sessions are normally offered at our events or a Busy Bee supporting our members.  Please contact Michelle for further information.
  • Professionals or corporations with specialised skills. Invisible Illnesses Inc welcomes volunteers with specific skill sets. For example; qualified people – hairdresser, nail technician, Reiki Therapist, podiatrist, dietician or, business professionals who might assist in areas of finance, human resources, training, safety, or marketing.

What’s involved?

There is always lots to do at Invisible Illnesses Inc, from sorting and processing goods in our opshop to volunteering in our offices or supporting our members with cleaning or gardening which is why we value the specialised skills, energy, and enthusiasm of our volunteers.
