We regularly attend festivals and public events around Australia, where our amazing volunteers help us raise awareness about issues like global poverty, gender inequality and climate change.

  • Be part of a network of like-minded volunteers working to raise awareness of global issues such as poverty, gender inequality and climate change.
  • Learn more about these issues and the practical solutions organisations like CARE provide in some of the world’s poorest communities.
  • Share this knowledge with the public, and engage with real people about real issues.
  • Contribute in a fun and engaging way and make a difference with issues that matter to you.
  • Inspire others to take part in the effort to eliminate poverty.

Working as a volunteer

CARE Australia respects and values diversity, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, age, religion or politics.

All volunteers are advised that CARE Australia reserves the right to conduct police checks and other screening procedures to ensure a child-safe environment. For more details, please see our CARE Australia Child Protection Policy.

Our CARE Australia Volunteer policy ensures we comply with Volunteering Australia’s Code of Practice. Volunteers are covered by our health and safety policy and, where no other organisation’s insurance policy applies, are covered by CARE Australia’s personal accident insurance policy.

Volunteer at a CARE office

We regularly accept volunteers to assist us with specific projects in both our Canberra and Melbourne offices. Volunteering opportunities are advertised publicly and listed on our Vacancies page. Due to the large volume of requests we receive, we’re unable to consider volunteer applications unless received in response to a specific advertisement.
