Help WA thrive

Anglicare WA services are available through the generosity of WA businesses, government, and people like you.

If you’re in a position to contribute, we’d greatly appreciate your support.

Volunteer with us

Without the willingness of volunteers to donate their time and skills, Anglicare WA would not be able to provide vital support to the community. Volunteers are incredibly important to our operations and we recognise their wonderful contribution.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering here at Anglicare WA. We appreciate your generosity.

Every person that volunteers with us brings a unique and meaningful contribution to the fabric of our organisation. On this page, you can explore the impact of our volunteers, view the different ways you can contribute to our organisation, and find out more about how to volunteer with us.

What skills are required?

No specific skills are required to become a volunteer, all you need is the desire to help others! The hours volunteered can be flexible. We ask for a minimum commitment of three months for most roles, participating one to two shifts per week.

What are the benefits of volunteering?

There are many benefits to volunteering! Some of the best aspects of volunteering include:

  • Learning new skills
  • Making new friends
  • Building your resume
  • Attaining a work reference
  • Making a difference
  • Becoming part of a team
  • Challenging yourself
  • Completing your community service hours

How do I know if I'm eligible?

All volunteers are required to undertake a National Police Check and some may require a Working with Children Check. If a volunteer does not have a National Police Check completed in the last 12 months, Anglicare WA can support the volunteer in obtaining this, at no cost to the volunteer.

Thread Together

Thread Together provides brand new, good quality clothing to people within our community who are struggling. 

We believe by giving people a choice to choose clothing that is their style, appropriate for their season of life and fits them well, we can help provide people with the dignity and confidence everyone deserves. 

In 2023 Thread Together distributed 5,320 items of clothing across Western Australia and supported 791 people across the Mirrabooka Hub and Mobile Wardrobe.

The Thread Together program has opportunities at both Midland and the Mirrabooka Hub.

Foyer Oxford

All young people need a home, support, and a springboard into independent living, learning and work. Some don’t get it. Foyer Oxford fills that gap. A cutting-edge youth housing service located on Oxford Street in Leederville, Foyer Oxford combines holistic support, high quality housing and access to flexible training to give young people the opportunity to thrive long term.

Getting ready for independent living is about gathering the skills that many of us take for granted; learning to sew, cook, how to do taxes, what it means to set a budget, simply meeting new people and connecting with your community.  We are looking for volunteers who are ready to ‘break the ice’, spark conversations and engage with young people.

Active Response Bereavement Outreach (ARBOR)

ARBOR is a free service offering short-medium term grief counselling, practical & emotional support, appropriate referral support, volunteer lived-experience peer support, and support groups to people recently impacted by losing loved ones to suicide.

ARBOR lived-experience peer volunteers are people who have experienced bereavement by suicide, helping others through similar situations. Peer volunteers attend monthly lived experience groups, eight-weeks newly bereaved groups, and individual and couple counselling sessions in conjunction with the grief counsellor to provide support and empathy.

ARBOR is designed to be as inclusive as possible and is appropriate for a culturally and linguistically diverse range of clients. Suicide bereavement support is offered to Aboriginal people and communities through partnerships with local Aboriginal specialist services.
