Our Volunteers

Thousands of Australian women, girls and those who menstruate, have received vital help thanks to our dedicated team of Share the Dignity volunteers. 

We call our volunteers Sheroes and Heroes because they are the backbone of the charity and make a real on-the-ground difference in the lives of those experiencing period poverty. 

We are so proud of the amazing volunteer community we have at Share the Dignity, who give up their time to help those in need. Key to our success is collaboration, teamwork, and mutual support. Without our volunteers we would not be able to successfully facilitate our drives, initiatives and activities.

Our volunteers assist in a variety of ways including collecting, sorting, logging and delivering donations to our Charity partners. We also have volunteers who provide leadership within their State or Region, advocate and promote the Charity, assist to coordinate key events and assist with grant applications.   

We are always looking for new people to volunteer and would love to have you join us!

Why Share the Dignity?

Share the Dignity works to make a real, on-the-ground difference in the lives of people experiencing period poverty.

We distribute period products to those in need and work to end period poverty here in Australia. When doing it tough, the last thing a person should be worried about is how they will be able to manage their period.

Share the Dignity provides a tangible way for the public to donate directly to the end recipient, by donating and distributing period products. 

Our Sheroes & Heroes love volunteering with Share the Dignity!

Time Commitment

As a Share the Dignity volunteer, you determine when and how you volunteer, to suit your lifestyle. Across the year we have three key drives (March, August and November) and this is our busiest time for our volunteer community.

You can elect to be involved for certain drives, campaigns/events or put your hand up for a more specialised volunteer role.

If life gets too busy, you can take a step back and jump back in when it suits you!

On average, our volunteers dedicate 3-5 hours per week during our dignity drives.
