Individual Volunteering

Volunteers are the cornerstone of our work. To be a volunteer in Community and Family Services throughout the year, you must be 18 years or older, available Monday – Friday from 10:00am – 4:00pm and be willing to submit a police check.

Please note that while we appreciate your interest, due to the sheer number of requests we receive, not all inquiries or applications can be replied to.
