Many Rooms only works because of the generous and creative support of our partners and volunteers – we are very thankful for them caring enough to make a real difference in the lives of those who need it most in our community.
We’re always on the lookout for people who want to use their time, gifts and talents to help others. There are many ways that you can be part of the Many Rooms Team, let us know what you’re interested in!
Volunteer at the Kitchen
Cooks, servers and kitchen hands
Our kitchen services provide a practical way volunteers can serve people doing it tough but also participate in a mutually supportive community. We encourage our volunteers to serve once a month for at least one year.
Our Community development team attend the kitchen twice a month. They have lunch with the participants, building relationship and help to provide the continuity of a familiar face and a listening ear. This team are also responsible for providing activities for participants.
‘A highlight for me was when I was able to translate for one of the Mandarin speaking ladies to express how grateful she was for Many Rooms and all the volunteers… although language is a barrier for her, she could see how much love and value the volunteers have for the participants through their commitment and time sacrificed to served them.’

Volunteer at the LIVING ROOM
We are currently seeking volunteers who can commit to building an ongoing friendship with an older person, who may be lonely and isolated.
Fortnightly visits are spent doing the things that the older person enjoys most—such as reading, listening to music, watching a favourite TV show or just chatting and reminiscing. Activities may also extend to going for a walk or an outing, subject to the health and mobility of the person being visited.
To make things easier for our volunteers, we will match you with a care recipient in your location – we will be available to volunteers and care recipients from around City on a Hill locations, including; Barwon South Western (Geelong), Metro Melbourne (East, West, South and North regions) and Brisbane (North and South regions).
