Dedicated volunteers have always been an integral part of MercyCare services. Currently, we have a large and vibrant team of volunteers who help to strengthen and add value to the quality of service we provide to West Australians and their families. 


No special skills are required to become a volunteer, you just need to have the desire to help others. The hours you volunteer are flexible during the week; however, we do ask for an initial minimum commitment of three months, but hope you will find your experience rewarding and stay with us beyond this time.


We have a variety of volunteering opportunities available across the Perth metropolitan area. If you have a passion for working with seniors, children, youth, or you would like to share your skills in music or arts and craft, please let us know.

Volunteers are involved with a range of MercyCare services including:

  • Residential Aged Care
  • Community and Home Support
  • Child Day Care
  • Employment & community programs
  • Support for youth at risk
