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.
