Gardening volunteers operate from our five depots – Carlisle, North Perth, Wanneroo, Safety Bay, Midland – from 8 am to approximately 3 pm.
Gardening volunteers are asked to wear closed in boots/shoes/trainers with comfortable shorts or trousers that they are happy to get dirty. Branded shirts are provided for regular volunteers. We recommend wearing a hat and sunscreen and bringing a packed lunch and water. CLICK HERE for more information about our gardening service.
Social Support Volunteering
Social support volunteers work directly with clients, one-to-one or in a group. Activities include taking a client shopping, home visits, trips to a place of mutual interest, or supporting a group of clients on an outing or in a program. Social support volunteers use their own vehicle to transport clients and are reimbursed for fuel. If a social support volunteer does not have their own vehicle, they may be able to carry out home visits by using public transport.
If you are interested in social support volunteering, contact us to discuss opportunities and availability. We make every effort to match volunteers and clients on convenience, location and mutual interest. Social support volunteering requires as little as two hours per fortnight.

VTF is recruiting Volunteer Transport Drivers to provide safe, timely, reliable transport to assist clients to access the community. Our clients are frail aged people and younger people with a disability. Our services support independence. You must have a clean driving record, be physically fit and have experience driving a people-mover style vehicle. Training and support is provided.
Most volunteers are looking to do something worthwhile, improve their resume, contribute to something meaningful in their community or improve their social circle.
Groups also find volunteering a great way to build their team, help their community and learn new skills. Groups include school, corporate, social and church groups. CLICK HERE for more information about group volunteering opportunities.
VTF volunteers are out and about in the community, making presentations on the benefits of volunteering and encouraging participation in Volunteer Task Force. This year we attended numerous community group activities and community events including expos, universities, community fetes and seniors fairs.
