Volunteer with SHQ

At SHQ, we value the diverse skills and contributions offered by our volunteers, who work across nearly every area of the organisation – including education and outreach, the library, and our People First Programme. Please note: we do not take on any volunteers in our clinic, and those interested in volunteering with Magenta should get in contact directly.

Our capacity to take on volunteers varies throughout the year. If we do not have any current positions, you can elect for SHQ to retain your contact details for up to one year and we will notify you if an opportunity arises. At present, we are not bringing on any new volunteers.

If you are a student wanting to apply for a work placement/work experience, please do so through your institution (School/University/TAFE etc.). If they do not have an existing contact in the organisation, please submit an enquiry through our contact form and it will be directed to the appropriate department.

We aim to respond to requests within 5 business days, however during busy periods response times may be longer.
