Volunteer with Aspire

Aspire provides many opportunities for volunteers to make a positive difference in people’s lives.

Volunteering is a great way to gain experience or skills, which in-turn can lead to employment with Aspire or another organisation.  It can also be an opportunity to put your well developed skills and talents toward helping others.

Volunteering gives you the chance to meet new people and experience new challenges.  Additionally, volunteers are valued members of the Aspire workplace, so we strive to ensure your personal development and work satisfaction needs are met.  

Volunteering with Aspire is a fun and inspiring experience and there is a great deal you can achieve through your role.  Read about some of the many ways you can volunteer with Aspire below.

Peer Support Program
The Peer Support program provides an opportunity for young people with disabilities to participate and socialise with their peers in a friendly, supported and inclusive environment.  Volunteers provide one on one support to young people with higher needs so they can participate fully in activities and have fun with their peers.

 

Host Carer/Family
Being a host carer/family is a rewarding experience where you can make a direct difference in the life of a child with a disability.  Aspire matches a child with a host carer who generally cares for the child for two days a month in the carer’s home.  A small allowance is made available to cover expenses whilst the child is in your care.

For more information contact Linda Sharp, Family Liaison Officer, on Tel. (02) 6058 4000.

 

Social Events
Various volunteer roles are available at the many activities and social events which Aspire runs for our service users throughout the year.
