Sheroes and Heroes - Our volunteers

Our Sheroes and Heroes, what we call our volunteers, are the backbone of Share the Dignity. Without them, we cannot run our initiatives and activities across Australia in our work towards ending period poverty.

We are so proud of the amazing community of Sheroes and Heroes we have at Share the Dignity, and it is so special to see the relationships that have been forged through a shared commitment to making the world a better place. We have seen groups establish strong connections and many socialise with each other, even holidaying together, and even volunteer at various charities together.

Thousands of Australian women and girls 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!

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! 

At Share the Dignity we strive to be inclusive and provide different ways for people to volunteer. We have Sheroes who count, sort, and log donations that others have dropped off to them, before being collected for delivery to our charity partners.

There are roles that can be done from a computer and manage the backend of the charity, and we are always needing more voices to advocate for us in our fight to end period poverty. Our volunteers love participating in the Dignity Drives and our annual It’s in the Bag campaign. But our Sheroes and Heroes will still put their hands up outside of drive and collection times when there is a crisis.
