Volunteer

OAK is always looking for passionate and enthusiastic individuals to participate in a wide variety of activities to contribute to our mission.

Every year caring supportive people donate their time, skills and talent towards making a difference to the lives of people with a disability. You can make a difference too!

What can you get out of volunteering?

Volunteering with OAK gives you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many people with disabilities. You will also meet people from diverse backgrounds, who like you want to give back to the community. You may have the opportunity to work with them and share experiences. It would also give you an opportunity to make use of and grow your many talents.

The time, talent and expertise offered by our volunteers is a truly valuable resource and one which we seek to manage efficiently and responsibly to ensure your time with us is enjoyable and rewarding.

All volunteers will receive the specific training necessary to carry out tasks effectively and safely.
