Get Involved


Hutt St Centre relies on the commitment of volunteers to assist with the provision of services to people facing homelessness, 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 vulnerable and facing homelessness. 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.

For the first quarter of 2019 we are only able to offer event or relief shifts- ad hoc volunteering, filling in for other volunteers, when they are away.

  • 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
  • Please note: All volunteers are required to undergo a police check. We can arrange this on your behalf, after your trial shift.

  • Your preferred volunteering area (see all volunteer role descriptions here)

Step 2: We will review your availability and skills to best match you to a suitable volunteering role, and will contact you as soon as a position becomes available. Please be aware that due to a high volume, we are unable to immediately respond to all enquiries, but will reach you as soon as possible.

Christmas Day Volunteering

Thank you for thinking of those doing it tough at Christmas. Christmas can be a very sensitive time for people facing homelessness, so it is important people are surrounded by those who they know and trust. Our Christmas Day volunteer rosters are comprised of people who have volunteered with us throughout the year and our clients are familiar with. 

Advertising for vacancies

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.
