Volunteer With Us
In order to help support our community we are excited to welcome new volunteers across all parts of our business in Toowoomba, ranging from helping with resources for playgroup and toy library to gardening and general administration.
Whether you are in-between jobs, retired, or simply looking to give something back to the community, you will be a valued and much respected volunteer within our Kath Dickson Family. As a registered charity your time with us may also contribute to some of your mutual obligations with Centrelink!
Because we strongly support and maintain the safety of children, you will need to hold a Positive Notice Blue Card (or obtain) and willing to undertake Criminal Police Check.

What are the benefits of volunteering?
How can I help?
As a not for profit we thrive with the help of volunteers and we can find a job for you regardless of your skill set. We believe that people should do what makes their heart happy and the same applies for volunteer positions. From admin, to gardening, toy repair to reading to children, there is always something to do.
Helping others and making a difference
Volunteering allows you to make a positive impact inyour community. This can be a deeply rewarding experience, as you can see the direct impact that your work has on the lives of children and their families.
Building skills and Experience
Volunteering can be a great way to develop new skills or build on existing ones.
Improving Mental Health
Research has shown that volunteering can have a positive impact on mental health, reducing feelings of isolation and improving overall well-being
Building a Sense of Community
Volunteering is a great way to build connections and a sense of belonging. By working together with others towards a common goal, you can develop a shared sense of purpose and commitment as well as meet new people and expand your social and professional networks
