Volunteer | Alannah & Madeline Foundation Skip to main content

Volunteering at the Alannah & Madeline Foundation is a rewarding way to make a big difference, giving your time and talents to support children and young people to live happy, safe and strong.

We are grateful for the generosity and dedication of our many volunteers, without whom our work for children wouldn't be possible.

Who can volunteer?

Our volunteers come from many backgrounds and ages, and bring diverse skills and experiences to our community. Every one of our volunteers is a valued member of our community.

As a Child Safe organisation, our volunteers must undergo criminal record checks and Working with Children checks before they can begin their volunteering service.

How your volunteering time will help children?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and become part of a community of committed supporters. It also gives you the opportunity to improve your skills, and of course, you'll be playing a vital role in helping children and young people be safe and strong.

Types of volunteer roles

Whether you have one day to spare or you’re looking to volunteer over an extended period, you’ll be helping us do more to ensure children and young people live happy, safe and strong. Please note, at this time we do not have availability to offer Buddy Bag volunteer packing sessions.

We have volunteer roles in the following areas:

  • Knitting, sewing, or crafting items for our Buddy Bags
  • Helping out at events and with fundraising activities such as our Richmond Football Club match day
  • Assisting with office administration and support
  • Skilled volunteering and pro bono support.
