Welcome to
Volunteer Task Force

Volunteer Task Force (VTF) has been serving the community since 1970. Our mission is to deliver services that support independence, enhance safety and amenity of people, and to build community through volunteering.

Our services are aimed at supporting those who have difficulty with everyday tasks due to frailty or disability. We take an enablement approach with a focus on providing services “with” a person and not “for” or “to” a person.

We  work in partnership with people and their carers to increase independence and physical and social wellbeing.

Volunteer Task Force Inc. has recently announced that we will be merging with Community First International and Care Options Inc. to create a bigger, stronger, WA-based care organisation. Our new organisation will deliver care and services to over 10,000 clients across metropolitan and regional WA with a 400-strong workforce and over 600 volunteers.

Merger News

One of the founding directors of the successful merger between Community First, Care Options and Volunteer Task Force, Andrea Hall, has left the organisation to pursue a range of new opportunities. “The new Board presiding over the three-way merger is very strong, as is the new CEO, so I feel I’m leaving the organisation at a good time,” says Ms Hall, a former partner of KPMG’s Risk Advisory Services division. Board Chair Dr Moira Watson says, “already our new organisation is thriving and Andrea can take great pride in knowing that her involvement has been invaluable; we wish her all the very best for the future.”  Read the full media release.
