Come and join our team of valued volunteers.
Here's what some of our team have said about volunteering with HART
About our volunteer pathways
Social Support Volunteers
Social Support volunteering is on a one to one basis and may involve offering friendship and practical assistance to those in our community who are socially isolated e.g taking a Client out on a social activity such as morning tea, lunch, shopping, banking or other appointments.
It may involve just spending time visiting a Client in their own home, providing companionship or helping them to write a letter.
We provide both Social and Shopping Bus services and have volunteer roles for us Client Assistants.
Some outings are fortnightly while others are once a month. So if you have some time to spare on that basis we would love to hear from you!
Shopping buses operate in Casino, Lismore and Kyogle.
Social Outings are great fun and include activities such as:
- Mixed Social Outings
- Women’s Outings
- Men’s Outings
- Short Outings for those who may have difficulty with a full day.
Medical Transport Drivers
As a volunteer you let us know your availability, most volunteers offer 1 to 2 days per week.
HART Services provides local medical transport as well as trips to the Gold Coast and sometimes to Brisbane Hospitals/Specialists. Our volunteers let us know if they would like to drive long distance trips.
We provide well maintained HART vehicles to for our volunteers to transport our clients to their medical appointments.
We offer a full day orientation as part of our on boarding processes in becoming a volunteer team member.
This will be conducted at our head office, 41 Conway St, Lismore.
Medical Transport volunteers will also participate in a vehicle orientation.
A “Buddy Day” will be arranged for you with an experienced volunteer who helps you settle in and feel supported before going on your first solo trip.
