Giving back

Our volunteers are a breath of fresh air.

We wouldn’t be able to achieve what we do without their enthusiasm and commitment.

Our volunteer roles are extremely popular and this means in the past we've maintained extensive waitlists.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we're currently running on reduced volunteer rosters. Our current and regular volunteers are being very patient during this time - which we're thankful for. In the event there are any vacant volunteering roles, they will be advertised here.

To find out more about where you can volunteer your time, you can contact Volunteering SA & NT

Another way you can help is by holding your own fundraising event

Current volunteer vacancies

Volunteer opportunities are limited while we're running on reduced rosters, but any vacant volunteering roles will be advertised here.

Frequently asked questions

I'm not a current Hutt St Centre volunteer, can I volunteer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we're currently running on reduced volunteer rosters. Our current and regular volunteers are being very patient during this time - which we're thankful for. Once we're in a position to have full capacity of volunteers back on board we'll be offering any vacanices to our current and regular volunteers first.

Unfortunately we are no longer in a position to take on additional volunteers, and have had to close our waitlist. 

During this time of uncertainty and rapid change due to COVID-19, Volunteering SA/NT is acting as a central information and coordination point for new volunteers and opportunities in South Australia.

Can I help during Extreme Weather - Code Red or Code Blue?

In order to best help and protect people challenged by homelessness, only trained staff support our response to extreme weather conditions.
