Want to become a volunteer?

Becoming a volunteer at Gellibrand Support Services can introduce a person to a wealth of information and new experiences - and there are innumerable benefits in becoming a volunteer.

In the beginning, a volunteer may feel a little hesitant as how to act, how to ask questions and how much support a client may require. However, it is important to remember that people with disabilities are like any other person in the community, deserving of the same rights and opportunities. The best advice is to just be yourself.

A volunteer's role involves supporting and empowering the client to make their own decisions and solve their own problems to the best of their ability. This is all done whilst supporting the client to participate in activities such as going to the footy or creating mosaics.

All persons who approach Gellibrand Support Services to volunteer will need to complete the following tasks before commencing work at any given Service Site:

  • Undergo a Victorian Police check
  • Complete an Induction Checklist
  • First Aid Certificate
  • OH&S training
  • Complete a vehicle driving assessment (optional)

Gellibrand is always on the lookout for keen and enthusiastic volunteers.
