Volunteer with Us
There are many ways to help
DVCS achieve its goals:
Volunteer as a:
Community Support Worker (CSW)
Do you like helping people? Do you have compassion and a listening ear? Would you like to help those less fortunate during difficult times? Then becoming a CSW Volunteer is the role for you!
CSW Volunteers provide information, referral and support services to individuals and their families during emergency situations. Our drop-in emergency relief centre operates Mon-Fri 9.30am to 4.30pm from our office in the Greensborough Plaza. CSWs can assist clients with pantry food, food vouchers, FoodShare referrals, and provide financial assistance with back to school expenses, prescriptions, utility expenses, fuel and transport.
CSWs are compassionate, non-judgmental, independent and respectful of the rights of clients to make their own choices.
DVCS provides training and support of all new CSW volunteers, including accredited training.
