We are lucky to have a loyal band of amazing volunteers who help us carry out our important work in the Irish Australian community, but we are always on the lookout for more!
Examples of how volunteers help us throughout the year:
- Tutor students at our Senior Surfers computer class
- Visit seniors in nursing homes and in hospitals
- Assist with the administration of the Irish Support Agency’s office
- Man the tea tent at the Sydney’s St Patrick’s Day festival
- Set up, serve and clean up at our Senior’s Christmas lunch
- Hold bucket collections and sell raffle tickets
We don’t need qualifications or experience, just a passion and enthusiasm to help. If you’d like to volunteer your time to help us make a difference at one, or several, of our many events and fund-raisers throughout the year, click here to express your interest.
If you are a provider of professional services that could be of assistance to our clients or the administration of the organisation, we would love to hear from you. Please complete this questionnaire too.
Thanks to the hard work of the St Patrick's Day Committee and generous support of the Irish community, the Sydney St Patrick's Day celebrations will return on Sunday 18th March at Sydney Entertainment Quarter.
Once again we will host the tea tent at the festival and once again we need the help of our volunteers to keep the Barry's tea flowing! Volunteers help us serve free tea, coffee and brown bread to festival-goers and help spread the word about the important work we do for the Irish community in Sydney.
If you are able to help us for an hour or two please use the link below to sign up and indicate your availability. This will help us roster volunteers to cover the full day.
