Volunteer with us
Are you keen to become more involved & contribute to your local community?
Your Side Australia (also known as Northside) needs volunteers to assist in a variety of ways which best suit your interest and skills.
Volunteering can include:
- Supporting clients on a one to one basis during events and activities.
- Assisting with shopping, or assisting the driver to operate a bus hoist
- Being a companion to some very fun and interesting people
- Supporting office staff with administration tasks
The benefits of volunteering are immense. Volunteers expand their own social networks through companionship with other people in the community. By volunteering just a small amount of your time, you can also expand your own work skills, achieve greater mental and physical health and feel a sense of personal fulfillment.
Student Placements & Internships
Your Side Australia (also known as Northside) is also happy to host University student placements and work with the university to design a program which enhances the students action learning in a real work environment.

However, there are times when our team just cannot do it all. That is where volunteers come in and are vital support.
