Volunteer with CARAD

CARAD is a volunteer led organisation.  We currently have over 150 volunteers donating their time, expertise and skills to positively contribute to the lives of asylum seekers, refugees and detainees. There are a range of volunteer opportunities available including both long term and short term volunteer commitments.

Follow the links below for more details about our volunteering opportunities:  

Volunteer Program Documentation

All volunteers should be familiar with the Volunteer Code of Conduct.

We have also developed a Volunteer Handbook which we hope will provide helpful guidance for your Volunteer Roles. Please take some time to read through it if you are an active volunteer or considering volunteering.

Interested in Becoming a CARAD Volunteer?

Come to one of our information sessions, held at the CARAD office.  During the session you will learn about our organisation, the specific volunteer roles we have available and the process for becoming involved. You will be provided with all Volunteer Application forms at the information session. After attending an information session, volunteers will then be eligible to participate in a ‘Building Bridges’ Training Course.









Information Session dates:

It is compulsory for all new volunteers to please attend a Volunteer Information Session prior to the volunteer training, 'Building Bridges'.

The last volunteer information session for 2019 is scheduled for Tuesday evening, November 12, from 5.30pm to 6.30pm

Volunteer Information sessions will kick start on January 14, 2020 after the brief CARAD office closure during the Christmas/ New Year period.
