Volunteering with
our community

Volunteering keeps the wheels at Balwyn Evergreen turning. As an NFP organisation, we rely on the skills and generosity of our volunteers to help us provide our essential programs and services to our community.

Looking for a volunteer opportunity?

Volunteers are integral to the daily happenings at Balwyn Evergreen Centre, performing important roles such as driving the transport shuttle, serving meals, walking dogs and visiting people in their homes. Our volunteers help us deliver our quality services and, in turn, they benefit from the positive experience of being part of our community and making a difference in the lives of seniors.
