Volunteer with Barnardos

Become one of our volunteers. It's a fantastic way to meet like-minded people, have a lot of fun and make a difference.

Volunteers can make a huge difference!

We always need enthusiastic volunteers to help at a range of our fundraising events and help us raise funds for vital programs to help children, young people and families.

We simply couldn’t help Australia’s most vulnerable children without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers so thank you for considering to donate your time.
