Volunteer with us


Our volunteers are an essential part of the services provided through Ballarat Community Health and their work is hugely appreciated by staff and clients alike.

Volunteering is a great way to contribute to your community, develop and practise new skills, meet new people and learn more about what BCH offers the community.

Volunteering with BCH can include:

  • helping to prepare program materials and information packs
  • assistance in health promotion programs
  • supporting staff in client programs
  • community events
  • leading/assisting with walking and exercise groups
  • mail delivery and errands
  • Second Bite food rescue program
  • research
  • gardening, and more!

Most people volunteer a couple of hours a week, according to their particular role.  It is important that you can be available on a regular basis and be reliable.

Anyone can volunteer. We encourage people with a diversity of skills, knowledge and experience to apply. It is preferred that you are able to commit to a minimum of six months as a volunteer.
