Volunteering at Hutt St Centre
Hutt St Centre relies on the commitment of volunteers to assist with the provision of services to people who are homeless, in a variety of roles and in different areas of the Centre. We are very fortunate to have a fantastic group of volunteers who make our work possible each day.
Throughout the Centre each week we have 180 active volunteers working alongside our staff group to ensure we can offer the highest quality services possible to people who are homeless and vulnerable. Volunteers contribute around 1,450 hours every month!
We welcome volunteers to contribute their knowledge, skills and time towards the vision and practices here at Hutt St Centre.
We generally require volunteers for roles at the Centre Monday to Friday between the hours of 7am to 4pm. Opportunities for event volunteers are generally available after hours or on event weekends.
Please note: we are not open in the evenings. All volunteers are required to undergo a police check.
We are very fortunate to have a fantastic group of dedicated, passionate volunteers contributing their time and skills to Hutt St Centre on a regular basis.
There are currently no volunteer vacancies available.
When volunteer positions do arise, they are advertised to current volunteers in the first instance, and are then advertised on this webpage, and our social media channels, to invite applications. Please check this page regularly for updates. Unfortunately we are unable to keep a register or waiting list for positions.
We recommend checking with Volunteering SA & NT for positions with other organisations who are currently seeking volunteers.
Volunteering at Christmas
Thank you for thinking of Hutt St Centre and people experiencing homelessness at Christmas. This time of year can sometimes be a sensitive time for people who access our services, and it is important that they are welcomed and supported in our Centre by people who they know and trust. As such, volunteer roles on Christmas Day and associated holidays are filled by our amazing group of passionate volunteers who have supported us regularly throughout the year, and have built rapport and trust with our guests.
There is a very high demand for our services across the Christmas period, and we would be grateful for your support in keeping these services operating through our Christmas Appeal.
Thanks again for thinking of us, we really appreciate it!
We would like to thank all our Hutt St Centre volunteers, past and present, for always putting in 100%. We are so lucky to have such an incredible group of volunteers who are willing to help and support people experiencing homelessness. You are AMAZING!
