Current Volunteering Opportunities
Attention cat lovers…
Limited volunteer roles currently exist to assist in our local adoption cattery. It’s not a glamorous role, however, you do get to interact with many cats whilst doing the job. You are required to be physically fit.
Contact the BVRC Office for further info!!
Do you have excellent communication skills and a ‘can do’ attitude, as well as a friendly welcoming presence? You will be required to deliver excellent customer service, categorise, price and display stock, maintain a stylish store and window displays. Tasks are varied and hours are flexible.
YRIPP Independent Person Volunteers
Are you a caring person who has a fair balanced attitude towards police and an ability to remain non-judgemental about young people and their behaviour? An ability to remain calm but assertive and make good decisions in high pressure situations? Volunteer Independent Persons attend police interviews with young people under the age of 18 at designated police stations across Victoria, and they are now seeking volunteers on an ongoing basis.
15 roles currently exist for those wishing to make a difference and stand up for the rights of people with a disability. As a part of this role, you will be required to visit home groups of people with disabilities, speak to residents regarding any issues or concerns they may have and at times, resolve any issues or refer to a senior volunteer team leader. This is best suited to someone with good communication, interpersonal and teamwork skills.
Full training will be provided.
Family Support Volunteers
Commecing in 2018, this special role will only take up 2-4hrs per week of your time. It is all about supporting families who have a child with a life limiting condition, or have recently lost a child to illness. Emotional and practical support and companionship needs to be provided, and this role is best suited to someone who is empathetic, has stability in their own life and has the ability to self reflect on personal experiences of loss.
