More than 1.5 million Victorians volunteer their time, skills and experience. They make a considerable contribution to our local communities. At Independent Disability Services (IDS), we do our best to match our volunteers with activities that align with their skills and passion.

If you think you have a particular skill that would benefit our clients, we would love to meet with you to discuss volunteer opportunities.

Who can volunteer?

We are always looking for caring and reliable people, no matter how much or how little time they can spare. Anyone over 18 years of age who is interested in supporting people with a disability can volunteer. No special skills or qualifications are necessary.

All volunteers must be prepared to have a Police Check and Working With Children Check before engagement.
