Become a Volunteer

Share your time, passion and skills to help LifeCare reach out to more people in need. From one-off volunteer roles to ongoing positions, we have something for everyone.

“I would encourage anyone to consider being a part of the LifeCare team. It is a great way to give back to the community and provides lifelong friendships.”

Dave Cuddon and his family have been a big part of LifeCare from the very beginning. Dave volunteers with the LifeCare ‘s Finance Care program, equipping people with skills and encouraging them through financial mentoring. His wife, Katrina, volunteers in the Prayer Ministry, and their children, Steph and Lachie, fundraised for LifeCare by running in the Melbourne Marathon.

Fundraise for LifeCare

Our goal is to raise much needed funds to support our programs. Our services have helped hundreds of clients in the community over the past year, seeing them through struggles with substance use, homelessness and family violence. No matter what their circumstance is, LifeCare aims to help everyone flourish emotionally, socially, economically and spiritually through care and community.

Serve in Family Violence Programs

Opportunities to serve within Family Violence Programs include helping to prepare food each week for participants at Waratah House, and helping to run our occasional child care program.
