The Greater Dandenong Volunteer Resource Service is a joint initiative between South East Volunteers and the City of Greater Dandenong.
We provide a personalised service through either face to face interviews or over the phone, to assist organisations in finding the right volunteer. We screen and train volunteers for placement within local community organisations, creating a strong community sector. In addition, we deliver training to managers who work with volunteers so that volunteers receive strong support.
The opportunities through voluntary work are many and varied. Not-for-profit organisations include volunteers in roles related to arts, culture, education, environment, health, emergency services, sport and international development. Volunteers might be involved in research, retail sales, home maintenance or food preparation. Volunteers can be any age or nationality and are invited to discover the number of opportunities available to them.
We aim to provide a high-quality, responsive service that provides positive experiences for volunteers and agencies in search of volunteer support.
Our volunteer referral interviews are by appointment so please call South East Volunteers on 9562 0414 to schedule a time to visit us and discuss volunteer opportunities suitable for you.
We offer a broad range of services that are free for both volunteers and managers of volunteers, including:
- volunteer referral interviews
- information brochures
- training workshops for volunteers
If you are interested in voluntary work, please contact us to make an appointment time for an interview and we will help find appropriate volunteer work for you. Alternatively, to browse volunteer roles that are available through the GDVRS, visit Go Volunteer.
