Individual Volunteering
Make a difference to the lives of our friends experiencing homelessness by volunteering.

If you are looking to make a real on-the-ground difference in the lives of those experiencing homelessness, we would love for you to join us!

Here at The Good Box, our volunteers are the backbone of the organisation and part of the family. We simply would not be able to do what we do without them!

Our 3 main values at The Good Box are: collaboration, respect and integrity. We are looking for volunteers to assist in a variety of ways including collecting, sorting, logging, delivering donations and liaising with our Charity partners. We are also looking for volunteers to provide leadership in their community, promote our charity to their local community, assist to coordinate key events, and assist with grant applications.

As a Good Box volunteer, you determine when and how you volunteer, to suit your lifestyle. Across the year we have four key drives (May, July and November) and this is our busiest time for our volunteer community.

You can elect to be involved for certain drives, campaigns/events or put your hand up for a more specialised volunteer role.

If life gets too busy, you can take a step back and jump back in when it suits you!

On average, our volunteers dedicate 3-5 hours per week during our drives.

Ready to volunteer with us?

As a volunteer with The Good Box, you can choose where you want to work. Our physical storage spaces are currently in Templestowe (Melbourne) and Hendra (Brisbane) where donations and storage is kept, however we work with communities all over Melbourne and Brisbane.

We are slowly transitioning into a new space in Western Sydney, so if you'd like to be our inaugural Sydney volunteers, please register your interest!

We can’t wait for you to join our Good Box family!

My experience as a volunteer was extremely rewarding that I decided to officially be a part of the team. Seeing the help in person opened my eyes to the problems faced by individuals everyday.


Such wonderful work is The Good Box that helps others feel worth while.


Love coming in to help. Everything's so well organised before we start. That way we can pack in a production line.
