Welcome to Volunteering Geelong
Oct 27, 2016


Volunteering Geelong is an independent not-for-profit organisation that is committed to enhancing the quality of life in the community, through the promotion and support of volunteering.

Volunteering Geelong has relocated to the St Mary's Terrace Community Hub (192a Myers St). The Hub was recently developed by Common Equity Housing Limited.  Volunteering Geelong manages the space located in central Geelong.  It provides community organisations, commercial businesses and individuals with meeting, training and event spaces for hire at a low cost. Check out our brochure for more information.

There are spaces for workshops, seminars, talks and meetings accommodating up to 50 people.  There is also a consultation room for private meetings, interviews or one on one catch ups.

Volunteering Geelong also provides a referral service for volunteers looking for volunteer roles and organisations looking for volunteers.

Contact Volunteering Geelong on 0352211377 or if you would like more information.

HelpOUT emergency volunteering service
Dec 15, 2016
Emergency volunteering

Volunteering Geelong has been a key partner supporting Volunteering Victoria's new HelpOUT emergency volunteering service. This service operates year-round. The service registers interested volunteers and links them to organisations working in disaster-affected communities when help is needed.

Volunteering to help in an emergency can be a rewarding and enriching experience.

Register now to offer your help when it is needed most.

Through HelpOUT, everyday Victorians can register their interest in helping communities impacted by an emergency.  HelpOUT then matches people with rewarding volunteering opportunities that support identified community needs by partnering with the organisations working on the ground in affected communities.

People who want to volunteer can:

    Easily register their interest and availability online or over the phone
    Specify their preferred availability and the skills they can offer
    Be contacted by Volunteering Victoria's HelpOUT team and offered suitable volunteering opportunities as they become available

Eligible organisations involved in emergency management can:

    Register as a HelpOUT client organisation
    Receive tailored information and support to help prepare for emergency volunteering
    Submit requests for volunteers to assist with specific tasks before, during or after an emergency

For more information, read the Frequently Asked Questions or call us on (03) 8327 8560.

Give Where You Live - Feed Geelong Project
Jul 12, 2016
In 2016 Geelong Food Relief  received a Give Where You Live (Feed Geelong Grant)  to auspice Volunteering Geelong to deliver a project on behalf of the Geelong Food Assistance Network (GFAN). The project was based on the concept of providing basic training in volunteer management to GFAN members along with building resources that can be used (such as a volunteer handbook) for improving volunteer management.

The project was rolled out over a 6 month period during 2016, with workshops being held for GFAN network members, focusing on building their skills in volunteer management. The working group also developed a GFAN Volunteer Handbook - suitable for adaptation for GFAN member organisations.

Below are GFAN working group members who assisted in developing the handbook, with Volunteering Geelong's project manager, Alison Duff.
