Volunteering with Interchange
Volunteering is a fantastic way to contribute to your local community’s well-being and develop meaningful relationships with young people who have a disability and their families. It’s also a great way to gain extraordinary life experiences, whilst having fun and meeting like-minded people. Volunteers come from all walks of life, young, old, couples or singles; with or without children, anyone over 18 years would be considered. Volunteers under 18 may be suitable for particular programs. The suitability of prospective volunteers is assessed by the local Interchange staff.
Volunteers do not require any previous experience in caring for a child or young person with a disability. Ongoing support and training is provided. Volunteers are covered by insurance while they are participating in Interchange programs.
Volunteers undertake a range of activities with our clients including day and social group activities, camps, school holiday programs and playgroup.
