- Sharing and making a difference in someone's life
- Gaining knowledge and building your skill set

STEP 1: Submit Your Application and References
Explore our volunteer roles above to see what fits you. Please read the role descriptions before applying for a position to confirm that the role suits your interests and availability. Complete and submit the volunteer application package. The application can be completed online below.
All volunteers are required to provide two references completed by individuals who know you well and are not family. The referee should complete their reference online via the link below.
STEP 2: Informal Interview
Once your application and two references have been reviewed, we will determine if there is a possible opportunity. If there is, the Volunteer Administrator will connect with you to schedule a volunteer interview within a couple of weeks. If there are no suitable opportunities, we will contact you and keep your application on hand in case an opportunity arises in the future.
STEP 3: Submit Your Police Check & Final Steps
If you are offered a volunteer role during the interview, you will be required to submit a police check with vulnerable sector screening. If you already have one completed within the last year and is the original copy, please bring this to your interview. Otherwise, a volunteer letter will be issued to you to take to the police station at your interview.
STEP 4: Wait to Hear from Us
Many of our roles do not start immediately. NCC likes to ensure a good match between your skill-set and our organization’s needs. Depending on your role, it may take time for us to match you. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
