About this opportunity

If you Love to

  • chat and help others
  • be part of a committed and caring team
  • volunteer for 3 hours per week or fortnight This is the volunteering role for you

At 4 Voices we endeavour to respond to the incredible increase in social and digital isolation within our community. There are many unemployed people, many elderly people, and many girls and women who have experienced domestic violence and or homelessness – these people are in desperate need of connection.

We would love your help if you are like to chat and have a genuine desire to help people in need and are familiar with (not necessarily an expert in) computers and other technology. We are particularly looking for volunteers who are prepared to commit to a regular shift; as consistency and continuity of service is what we aim to provide to the vulnerable people we help.

We have an outreach service that operates at various locations in Brisbane South, Logan and Ipswich. Our van is fully equipped with laptops, a printer/copier/scanner, TV and Wi-Fi.

We currently need two types of volunteers:

  1. General shift volunteers who provide social and digital support to vulnerable people on location. Commitment is 3 hours per week or per fortnight shift at a location with our van.
  2. Team leaders who can take responsibility for driving the van, managing both volunteer and shift activities, and taking the time to understand people’s issues. Commitment is 4 hours per week.

Blue cards are required but can be obtained once registered. These are free of charge for volunteers with 4 Voices

Please indicate in your application which volunteering opportunities interest you most and why you would be a good fit for 4 Voices.
