Refuge Victoria has limited volunteer opportunities available within our refuges due to the confidential nature of our work.  We hope to expand our volunteer program in 2022, COVID restrictions permitting.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Gardening/Handyman Services

Refuge Victoria operates three refuge facilities and has 15 crisis properties situated throughout Victoria. We are always keen to hear from people who enjoy gardening and/or who love to tackle small household and garden jobs to help maintain our crisis properties in Melbourne. 

In 2016 I retired from a full-on career in building and running a business in the trade industry. Late in 2019 I volunteered as a handyman for Refuge Victoria. For me, becoming a volunteer has been an opportunity to wind down and offload some energy – I call it ‘Retirement Therapy’. By continuing to use my skills and other (hidden) talents, I can still challenge myself to achieve new personal goals. Also by being involved, I can help and contribute to the important services Refuge Victoria provides to the community.
