How to Become a Volunteer

Step One: Apply

A Volunteer Application Form must be completed to become a volunteer. The application form provides the Volunteer Co-ordinator with information about you, your interests and previous experiences. To receive a Volunteer Application Form, please contact the Home you are interested in volunteering at or complete the information below.

Step Two: Interview

Upon receipt of the completed form, the Volunteer Co-ordinator will contact you to set up an interview. The interview provides the opportunity for Volunteer Co-ordinator to learn more about you, why you want to volunteer, your interests and skills. This is also an opportunity for you to meet the Volunteer Co-ordinator and ask any questions you might have.

Step Three: Criminal Reference Check

All volunteers require a successful criminal reference check. The Volunteer Co-ordinator will provide you with a letter for the police expressing your interest in volunteering with the Home. It is your responsibility to take the letter to the police, obtain the criminal reference check and ensure a copy is brought back to the Home.

Step Four: Orientation and Training

All volunteers complete mandatory orientation and training related to health, safety and their roles and responsibilities. Additional training is provided for roles specific to a department or position.
