Our volunteers make a valuable contribution to the Southern Cross Care community by donating their time and skills to support the wellbeing of our residents and clients. Volunteers provide essential connections to the local community and perform a range of roles that enable residents and clients to remain active, independent and socially engaged.

We encourage anyone aged 14 years or older to express their interest in one (or more!) of our fun and rewarding volunteer opportunities.
