I see there is a thread on this but it’s from 2009 so I thought I’d write an updated one.
I’ve been struggling to find somewhere to volunteer in Canberra, the ones listed on GoVolunteer all seem to require day hours but I work full-time. Also some of them were listed an awful long time ago and seem no longer valid.
I phoned and/or emailed to various community organisations which listed volunteering as an option on their web sites and were told they were all full! Also filled in a form for the Red Cross and haven’t heard back. I’ve had a google but most places are really vague on whether they need volunteers NOW or not, and some have very intrusive forms you have to fill in before you even know if they have positions free!
Anyone have any luck getting a volunteering place or know somewhere which definitely needs people? My method seems to be having no luck so I thought I’d see what other people do.
