Nardy House needs volunteers committed to our vision to support our many and varied programs to play an important role in our ability to provide services to children and adults with profound physical disabilities, including people with acquired brain injuries. Our volunteers are people from all walks of life and this rich diversity fits with Nardy House’s presence in the community.

With the continual growth in our programs and the ongoing commitment to new programs, the scope for volunteering is growing. Our volunteers are able to support us with ongoing support to clients, administration assistance, group support, one-off volunteering and event support.

Volunteer Commitment

Some roles benefit from a volunteer who is able to make an ongoing commitment while others are ideal if you only have limited hours to donate as a volunteer. Where a role is directly supporting our clients we would like someone who is able to commit on a regular basis for at least six months. Short term and one-off volunteers are always required for our fundraising and special events. We will work with you to find a volunteering role that fits with your interests and availability.
