Bridge to Volunteering
We offer a free information session called Bridge to Volunteering on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month. The information session explains what it means to volunteer, types of volunteering and your rights and responsibilities.
Community Visitors Scheme
The Community Visitor Scheme (CVS) supports volunteer visits in providing friendship and companionship to older people experiencing loneliness. Visits are available to people receiving government-subsidised aged care or Home Care Packages.
Hunter Volunteer Centre Welcome Team
The Hunter Volunteer Centre and Charlestown Square have teamed up to create the HVC Welcome Team. The program trains volunteers interested in retail and customer service employment with the skill set valued by employers.
Timebanking is a free community program that allows the voluntary exchange of services between members. Exchange of services is based on an hour for an hour and allows members to connect with others in the community through sharing their skills.
Volunteer Pathway to Employment
Many people often consider volunteering as a way to demonstrate their skill sets and experience while looking for employment. Our Volunteer Pathway to Employment sessions discuss the connections between volunteering and employment.
Work and Development Order
Work and Development Orders (WDO) offer a way for people experiencing hardship to clear fines they may have incurred. Eligible people reduce their unpaid fines by participating in voluntary work, approved courses and programs.
