Volunteer and Donate

At Connecting2Australia, we recognise that many people want to get involved and help support the work we do within the community. There are so many ways to help and we love nothing more than hearing from people who are as passionate about what we do, as we are!

Donate financially:

Over the years, we’ve been fortunate enough to receive donations from both organisations and individuals who are keen to make a difference. Every donation we receive enables us to keep developing the skill, confidence and employability of the adults we support and all donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.

Donations can be made online by clicking here, over the phone by calling 1300 111 212 or by posting a cheque made out to Connecting2Australia, PO Box 773, Frankston, Vic 3199.

Donate goods and services:

If you have goods or a service that you think would be of use to Connecting2Australia then we’d love to chat. Anything from donating food for use in our cooking classes to offering your facilities for our clients to use would be hugely beneficial to our work.

You may also choose to support us by donating your unwanted clothing and household items to one of our three opportunity shops that are supported by a valued team of volunteers:

Mt Eliza, 16B Ranelagh Drive
Open Monday to Friday 9.30am to 3.30pm and Saturday 9.30am to 12.30pm

Morwell, 43 Buckley Street
Open Monday to Friday 10am to 2pm

Traralgon, 15 Seymour Street

Volunteer with us:

Volunteers make up an important and integral part of our team. A rewarding role, most volunteers choose to work in a hands-on capacity, helping customers undertake a range of activities and supporting them in other disability services. We ask for a minimum commitment of half a day a week for a period of 3 months – on a day and time that suits you.

Volunteers currently facilitate within our local community:
– Old time dance
– Darts
– Bocce
– Table Tennis

Our customers have enjoyed these opportunities and have developed meaningful friendships and connections due to volunteers and the opportunities they provide.

Connecting2Australia also welcomes volunteers from local communities who have skills to share with others.

Work experience and student placement:

If you’re thinking about a career in community inclusion, then our student placements are a great way to get some hands-on experience within a supportive environment. All our students are paired up with a buddy mentor to ensure each student gets the most out of their placement. Ideally, students work with us one day a week during their time at Connecting2Australia and in return will get the opportunity to gain valuable industry experience and establish industry connections. We’d love to chat to see how we can support you.
