Volunteer With Us
PPCG works with a number of wonderful people who volunteer their time to support our programs including social meals, administration and support services and community engagement initiatives.
Eighty volunteers supported our Share the Food project during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, assisting with sorting, packing and delivering food parcels to residents in the City of Port Phillip.
We aim to provide a diverse range of opportunities for volunteers and appreciate the skills, experiences, talents, ideas and energy that volunteers bring in support of our mission and purpose.
Volunteering offers many benefits, including meeting new people, learning or developing skills, making a contribution to the community, remaining active and enjoying a sense of achievement and fulfilment.
PPCG requires all volunteers to undertake a Police Check and, where relevant, a Working with Children Check prior to welcoming them to our team.
Volunteers are valued members of our organisation and play an important role in helping us positively impact lives. If you’re interested in volunteering with us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We would love to match your passions, skills and available time with one of our program areas when a suitable opportunity becomes available.
