Do you love messy play? If so, we would love to hear from you! We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with our weekly Paint and Play Playgroups. It’s an opportunity to have lots of fun encouraging young children and their carers to play and learn together.
We all know that children learn best when they are having fun! Our Paint and Play Playgroups are designed to encourage young children (ages 0 – 3) and their carers to spend time playing together. Together the children learn vital skills, and the parents are encouraged in how to interact with their children and support one another.
Paint and Play Playgroup assistants help with the setting up of the activities, encourage the children and their carers to participate in the activities, and make sure everyone is having fun!
No previous experience is required.
We are delighted to now offer a playgroup at our Gordon Community Centre on Wednesday mornings (during school terms) and we are looking for some enthusiastic volunteers to help with this new playgroup!
If you have any questions or if you think this sounds like something you would love to do, please contact us at email@example.com or phone 02 6245 7134.

Anglicare ACT and the Public Advocate of the ACT with the support of the Aboriginal Legal Services NSW/ACT, are in need of volunteers to assist with the ACT Interview Friends Program.
The Interview Friends program has been operating for more than 15 years and some volunteers have been with the program since its inception. It is a rewarding program to be involved in and is highly valued by members of the ACT Police.
Interview Friends provide independent and confidential support to children and young people who have been detained by police for interviewing in relation to an offence, and who do not have a parent or other adult who can be present with them. The interview Friend’s role is one of support and to ensure the rights of the child are upheld.
Interview friends provide assistance both during and outside of business hours (including weekends) and will require their own transport. It is envisaged that each Interview Friend would be rostered on approximately 2 – 3 nights per month. Interview Friends recruited to the program will be provided with initial and ongoing training and support.
If you are interested in becoming an Interview Friend or want to find out more about the program and the role of the Interview Friend, please contact Lois Kennedy at Anglicare on 6232 2488 or email email@example.com
Applicants will be required to fill out an application form (see link at the bottom of this page) and must be willing to undergo a referee check, a full criminal history check and obtain a Working With Vulnerable People (WWVP) registration.
When disasters strike people often ask “How can I help?”
Anglicare trains and registers volunteers to provide support in their communities in times of natural disaster eg bushfires, floods and after some man-made emergencies. Our volunteers are ready to go at a moment’s notice to provide material aid and general support in evacuation and recovery centres and to assist with outreach doorknocking to disaster affected communities.
A Disaster Recovery volunteer is required to undertake a one day new recruit training and undergo Police checking processes. Approval as a Disaster Recovery volunteer lasts for three years. There are also opportunities to participate in training exercises with other community partners.
For information on our next training session please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
