Volunteer

Are you empathic and a good listener?
Are you committed to making a difference?

If you are over 21 and can commit a minimum of one day per week at our East Malvern office for at least 12 months, why not apply? We recruit two or three times a year.

Successful applicants undertake our award winning, competency based training program at no cost. Training includes:

  • a self-guided training manual
  • compulsory group training sessions
  • final assessments
  • 3 months supervised experience taking calls
Our volunteers say:
“The work here has an enormous impact on the wellbeing of people using our services. The dialogue we have with our callers represents a turning point in their lives ... the difference between finding help and continued distress.”
“My ongoing experience with Reconnexion has helped me to grow personally and professionally in a way that I had not anticipated before starting volunteering. I am thankful to have found a place within the Reconnexion family and deeply value the help I am able to give to others.”
