Make a brite difference
Volunteering with Brite is a great way to support people with disability while growing and developing your own skills. Volunteering can be a driver of personal development, social, economic and cultural change. It’s an empowering way to get back into the workforce, develop a diverse skill set and help people to fulfil a sense of community whilst ensuring capacity building and connection with others in a positive way.
Everyone has a different motivation for undertaking a volunteer position; we work with you to ensure you have the support and guidance you need to achieve your goals during your time with Brite. Our volunteering opportunities provide a wide range of benefits to both those who volunteer and Brite.
Overview of volunteering with Brite
As a not-for-profit organisation Brite values the key role volunteers play within our organisation. Each and every one of our volunteers help to further Brite’s mission through their individual skills, talents, and contributions to the Brite community. Volunteering with Brite allows you to undertake fulfilling work that helps you to develop your own skills, while working for an organisation that looks to maximise its volunteers’ potential.
At the beginning of your time as a volunteer, the Brite team will work with you to outline work that you will undertake during your time with us to ensure that your role matches your skills, interests and capabilities. As a volunteer, you will also be provided with an induction and ongoing support as part of Brite’s commitment to providing a safe and healthy workplace.
You can apply to be a volunteer at Brite, if you are 18 or over, successfully complete an NDIS Worker Clearance, Working with Children Clearance Check and fully COVID-19 vaccinated/medical exemption.
