“Volunteers are not paid- not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless”

As a proud South Australian charity for more than 80 years, community support for Novita remains vital in helping us ensure that kids, young people and adults living with disability can continue to receive every opportunity to develop their potential.

How can you help?

Do you have some spare time and are looking to support a worthy cause?
If you time and would like to help Novita, why not consider becoming one of our valued volunteers?

We appreciate life is busy, this is why volunteering at Novita can be as little or as much time as you like – we are truly grateful for any time you can give.

Novita is one of South Australia’s largest and most respected community-based disability service organisation, and volunteers are an essential part of who we are. We simply could not do the work we do without the support of our wonderful volunteers. By sharing your time and skills, you will be supporting Novita in giving people living with disability the best opportunities in life.

Our volunteers are involved in a wide range of responsibilities, including:

  • Assisting our Marketing/Fundraising Team with awareness-raising activities
  • Administrative support
  • Volunteering at Novita events
  • Working with our Auxiliaries.

Being a volunteer is both rewarding and fun. You will make new friends, learn new skills and use your knowledge and experience for a great cause.  

Please note that due to our significant commitment to university allied health student placement, we are unfortunately unable to accommodate requests for work experience. Volunteer opportunities are sporadic and generally consist of event and administrative support – volunteering is not suitable for gaining experience with clients.

If you would like to know more about volunteering or to receive a volunteer information pack please contact us.

Please note that all volunteers must have a National Police Clearance before the commencement of volunteering at Novita. If you do not have this clearance Novita will organise this and there will be no out of pocket expenses for volunteers.
