I Can Help
Community groups and charities are working alongside the NSW Government to provide structured support and help refugees as they rebuild their lives in NSW.
Opportunities exist for all members of the community to get involved and to volunteer their time, skills or experience to help welcome refugees to NSW. Big or small, your contribution can help make a difference to the lives of refugees living in NSW. Find out about the benefits of volunteering.
Volunteers come from all walks of life. They are working people, students, and professionals; they are young people and retirees. They come from every suburb and community and a variety of cultural, educational and religious backgrounds.
Please review the list below for volunteering opportunities in your area. You can also check for opportunities to support new refugees and migrants in NSW at volunteer.com.au and govolunteer.com.au.
