Regardless of your age or expertise there’s sure to be a volunteer role at CatholicCare Canberra & Goulburn that will suit your talents, interests and busy schedule. CatholicCare has had a long history of engaging volunteers and to this day they continue to play a vital role in many of our support and recreation programs.

Our main objective is to ensure our volunteers achieve personal satisfaction whilst making a difference in people’s lives at the same time. Our volunteers are as diverse as the projects they undertake. From school students to professionals, families and retirees – all make a difference in the lives of the people we work with at CatholicCare.


All volunteers must be over 16 years of age, be in possession of a Working with Vulnerable People Card (ACT), Working with Children Card (NSW) and be willing to undertake a police check.
