Share the Dignity is run on the power of volunteers across Australia
Thousands of Australians have received vital help thanks to our dedicated team of Share the Dignity volunteers. Our volunteers believe in collaboration, teamwork, and mutual support. 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.
Across Australia, we have thousands of volunteers helping to change the lives of those in need, we would love to have you join us!
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Share the Dignity in 2021!
Our volunteers are taking a well-earned break after our #ItsInTheBag Christmas campaign.
Your application will be processed when our volunteers are back on board on 1 February 2021 when you will be added to our online communication system and welcomed into your state team in readiness for our next campaign- our March Dignity Drive.
We can’t wait to have you aboard the Dignity Train with us. Thank you for your patience and for choosing to volunteer your time with Share the Dignity.
Why Share the Dignity?
Share the Dignity provides a tangible way for the public to donate directly to the end recipient, by donating and distributing period products. We work with hundreds of charities across the country to ensure products go to those who need them most. We have a range of volunteer options, from collecting and distributing products, event management and support, research, creative projects and administration. As a Share the Dignity volunteer, you can do as little or as much as you like. Our campaigns are cyclical so you have the ability to volunteer at the time of year that works best for you, without feeling obliged to commit every week.
There are so many ways to volunteer!
You don’t need to commit hours and hours – our volunteers are busy people, we just ask for a few hours per week to help us get the basic necessities to those in need. Volunteers may need to commit a couple more hours during our busiest times (March and August Dignity Drives and during our Christmas appeal, #ItsInTheBag). We need volunteers with all kinds of skills, please sign up and let us know how you can help us!
- Do you have the ability to spare a couple of hours each week during our drive campaigns to pick up and distribute period products?
- Do you have access to the internet on a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device?
- Do you have a passion to help those in need?
- Are you over 18 years of age?
- Are you excited to join a community of kind-hearted people and work together to end period poverty?
