It’s never too early to start thinking about how you can give back to the community and help in people need. Our volunteers play a very important role in the work we do in our community services – they help us provide more services, to more people, more often into the future.
To chat to a member of our team about the different volunteering opportunities we have available, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (02) 9857 2678.
Volunteer with your school
Introducing your school community to volunteering, like education, can be life changing. Whether you have a whole day, or an hour to spare – there are many ways you can contribute as a school community to the work of Wesley Mission. Contact us on email@example.com to discuss and find out more.
Wesley out of school hours
Wesley Out of School Hours Care (Wesley OOSH) offers supervised care before and after school, during school holidays (vacation care) and on pupil free days for primary school children. At our 11 centres across Greater Sydney and the Central Coast, we aim to provide engaging and high-quality service that values the uniqueness of all children. If your child is enrolled at a Wesley OOSH centre, you and your family are welcome to contact our teams if you’re interested in opportunities to volunteer and engage with community services.

Fundraise for a good cause
Whether you’re cycling in the outback, running a marathon, or selling cakes on your front lawn, holding your own fundraising activity can be a fun and extremely rewarding way to help your community. To find more information or learn how to set up your own successful fundraising activity, visit our Grassrootz page.
Kids Giving Back
Our charity partner Kids Giving Back is a charity offering programs for children 6-18 years old and their families which provides opportunities to assist vulnerable people in the community through work with charities. Embracing the concept of making a contribution back into community, all sessions are run by skilled facilitators.
Their programs enable children and young people to undertake practical and meaningful activities to support the work of charities whilst at the same time assisting them to acquire empathy, experience altruism and achieve a sense of belonging. Visit kidsgivingback.org
Remember – volunteering can be as simple as a small act of kindness, or the ability to make someone smile. The next time you’re out and about in your community, think of ways to give back. Whether it’s picking up garbage in your local area, helping a neighbour with their yard work, cooking a meal for a new mum, or donating your pristine and pre-loved items – every act of kindness makes a difference.
