​Kwinana Volunteer Centre

The Kwinana Volunteer Centre is a central point in the community for information on all things relating to volunteering.

Many local groups and organisations rely on the goodwill and generosity of volunteers to help them. By lending a hand, you can make a huge difference to the quality of other people's lives. 

Why Volunteer?
Volunteering's a great way to build on your life skills and is also a fun way to meet new people. The benefits of volunteering cannot be underestimated. 

Through volunteering you can:

  • try something different;
  • share your knowledge and skills;
  • learn new skills;
  • be more positive;
  • learn about, and become part of your community;
  • access training; and
  • improve your sense of self worth

There are a wide and diverse range of volunteering roles that can keep you busy for as little as half an hour per week to daily positions – whatever time you can spare!

To find out more about volunteering, call our Volunteer Coordinator on 9236 4314 or email volunteering@kwinana.wa.gov.au.

Rights and Responsibilities 
Unlike paid staff, volunteers are not covered by award or workplace agreements. Volunteers do have rights - some through legislation and some that could be considered the moral obligation of an organisation involving volunteers. Volunteering Australia promotes the following as the basic rights of a volunteer.
