Contributing to the development of a healthy, vibrant and supportive community through volunteering is a rewarding experience that gives something to both you and the community.

Our work at Holdsworth depends on and is enriched by people supporting their community by volunteering their time, experience and commitment.

What are the benefits of volunteering?

Volunteering has many benefits. It is an ideal way of getting to know your local community members, helping others, using existing skills or learning new ones. We highly value the contribution of our volunteers and provide our volunteers with job descriptions, training, support, reimbursement for program expenses and work references.

People of Holdsworth

Meet some of our wonderful volunteers who make our work possible. Take a look at their stories.

Meet Erin

Meet Lee

I have volunteered at Holdsworth for about two years. I also volunteer at Bondi Junction Neighbourhood Centre. I volunteer for music and movies on Wednesday’s. It’s a lot of fun, I enjoy doing that. I was recommended by Junction Neighbourhood Centre to come to Holdsworth, and it was love at first sight. 

I like helping people. I get to see regulars every week; most of them are still here from when I first started. It’s great to see them every week.

Meet Sally

I would always see the vans around the area and then when I stopped work and I thought I would like to do something so Holdsworth was my first call.

At first I thought I’d like to volunteer with children but then Georgie suggested that I get involved with the seniors and I’ve grown really fond of them. They always have such interesting stories to share.
