The success of Share the Dignity relies heavily on collaboration, team work and those who are willing to put their hand up to get the job done. Share the Dignity is run on the power of our volunteers. Everyone has a role to play in helping to Share the Dignity with those in need
As we continue to rapidly grow and the demand for our services remains strong, we are on the search for like-minded and passionate volunteers to support us in achieving our mission
We operate in all states and territories and currently have no office premises. This means that all roles can be done from home and gives more flexibility to our team of dedicated volunteers.
