Volunteering at MSCWA

Volunteers play an important role in ensuring MSCWA clients receive an excellent service. Besides the satisfaction you will receive in being part of the MSCWA team in achieving this objective; as a volunteer you will:

  • Acquire new skills and knowledge
  • Meet people of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds
  • Gain worthwhile life and work experience.

As a volunteer you are not paid a wage for the services you provide, but an honorarium is available for certain roles and out of pocket expenses are payable for others.

 Your voluntary efforts will make a difference to the lives of those who are disadvantaged or are not able to help themselves for various reasons.

You don’t need any experience to become a Volunteer at MSCWA and we provide you an initial orientation and ongoing support and supervision to undertake the tasks that you are assigned.

Volunteering activities vary and may include:

  • providing transport to clients.
  • Assisting with Recreational activities and tutoring for children.
  • Providing mentoring support.
  • Providing Entertainment to elderly clients- e.g. music, dance etc.
  • Assisting with Outings in the community.
  • Assisting clients with sourcing accommodation.
  • Undertaking client satisfaction surveys and other administrative work.

 

If you wish to volunteer please email a brief resume to admin@mscwa.com.au and addressed to Leonard Aung, Administrator.

For some volunteering work, you will need a current working with Children and police clearance. If you don’t have them MSCWA may be able to pay for them.
