Volunteering

Volunteering at CNLC

Volunteers are essential to what we do, and we love our volunteers! 

Given the role of volunteers in our organisation, we place premium value on their contributions, and are committed to appropriately recruiting, managing and utilising their time and skills.

We also care a lot about the community with whom we work, and so all volunteers are required to pass through a screening and interview process.

All enquiries re the Volunteer Program at CNLC should be directed to info@cnlc.org.au

Would you like to volunteer with CNLC?

  • The first thing you need to do is get in touch with an email to let us know what you are interested in doing
  • If there is a match between your interests and our needs, we will then send you through a Volunteer Application form and set up an interview.
  • If at this point in time we are unable to utilize your skills, we will place you on a waiting list and/or refer you on to other organisations in our community who may be able to host you.
