If you’ve got time and skills to share, you can do a lot of good here for people in need of a helping hand.

How to get started


Contact Open House via any of the following channels:

  • Online expression of interest ‘Enquire Now’ form
  • Call us directly on (03) 9459 7083


Our volunteer coordinator will contact you and arrange an interview to discuss what volunteer opportunities are available that match your interests, skills, and availability. They’ll also ask you to complete the necessary paperwork, including a police check application.


On successfully completing the above, you will be invited to attend necessary training. Once you finish your training, you’re finally ready to commence your new role.

Partner With Us

Become an Open House Volunteer

As a small, not-for-profit organisation, we depend on volunteers to help assist us in the delivery of our services. We seek volunteers who are kind, friendly and committed to our mission of providing long-term friendship and support to young people and adults in our community, particularly those who are disadvantaged or socially isolated.

If you have a talent for art and craft, sports, cooking, gardening, woodwork, bicycle maintenance, or hobbies that you would like to share —and have a passion for improving and enriching the lives of others, then Open House may be the place for you.

Our Mission

It is paramount that volunteers are involved and contribute to each aspect of our community. The health and growth of Open House lies within the hearts of its people and their commitment to give their time and gifts, working together and united in our God-inspired mission.
