Volunteering in Manningham


Volunteers work in all corners of the Manningham community and the opportunities are endless. There are many different ways that you can volunteer, including office and administration work, helping older people, caring for the environment, helping people with a disability, social companionship and driving people to appointments or outings.  Working in an op shop is a terrific way to raise funds for organisations who rely on revenue to support vulnerable members of the community.

If you are looking for a volunteering opportunity we can link you with organisations seeking volunteers in the Manningham area. Volunteering in Manningham (ViM) is a program of Doncare which acts as a conduit between people who have the capacity to volunteer and organisations advertising positions. Doncare’s services and education facilitates an awareness and motivation for people to get involved in their community.
