"Volunteers aren't paid because they are priceless."

Every day, our staff and clients bear witness to the invaluable services rendered by our amazing volunteers at our different locations including the Pine Rivers Neighbourhood Centre, the Pine Rivers Community Legal Service, and the Redcliffe Neighbourhood Centre.

We have over 200 volunteers who cut across different cultures, age groups, and professional backgrounds.

What is volunteering?

Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good and without financial gain.

How can I volunteer my time?

You can volunteer on a regular basis (eg. once a week) or you can volunteer for a specific project or program. We work with your time availability.


Adult learning tutors, handymen/women, ICT, gardeners, reception, multicultural support, administration, child-minding, solicitors, and various types of project specific roles, to mention a few.


Our roles require you to hold a Working with Children (Blue) card and/or a recent police check. We can help you apply for both.


You don’t have to be an expert. Your beautiful heart, with the support we provide, will make the big difference. However, qualities that will give you a head start are communication and interpersonal skills, team work, empathy, and problem solving.

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to make new friends, connect with the community, give back, gain work experience, learn, develop or keep skills, and also keep mentally and physically active. Plus, you get to see the impact of your work in our community.
