Brush with Kindness

The Brush with Kindness program mobilises teams of corporate volunteers to conduct landscaping and minor repairs to the exterior of homes of people who may be disadvantaged, disabled or socially isolated. It is a ‘backyard blitz’ style activity where teams between 10-15 can get out of the office and get their hands dirty! This is a great team-building experience for corporate volunteer groups. Find out more here.

Local Village

Our volunteer program Local Village is a 4-day volunteer trip where any individual can join a team of volunteers on a life-changing adventure to come together and help rebuild communities who were affected by the 2019-2020 Bushfires. We’re currently providing help to families in both New South Wales and South Australia. Please click here to see the trips we’re running in 2021

Bushfire Recovery Program

Individual volunteer opportunities are now available in New South Wales and South Australia for those who are looking to support Aussie families affected by the Bushfires by offering their time for one day during the week. For more information on how to sign up please click here.
