Volunteer with ASeTTS


Volunteering with ASeTTS positively contributes to the improvement of lives of refugee survivors of torture and trauma.  Over 100 volunteers currently donate their time, skills and expertise through a diverse range of roles. We welcome new volunteers to volunteering opportunities of both short and long-term commitment.


Becoming a Volunteer


If you are interested in becoming an ASeTTS volunteer, come to an information session run by our partner organisation the Centre for Asylum Seekers, Refugees and Detainees.  Attendees will learn about the work of both organisations in the sector, what opportunities for volunteering are available, and the process for becoming involved.


Attendees will be provided with all necessary application forms at the information session. After attending an information session, volunteers will then be eligible to participate in a ‘Building Bridges’ Training Course.
