Volunteering with Western Sydney MRC

There are so many benefits of volunteering, to you, your family, and your community. Volunteering can help you make friends through new networks, reach out and connect with your and other communities, learn new skills, and even change your career path.


Most of us want to help those less fortunate than ourselves, and one way to achieve this is through volunteering. At Western Sydney MRC we have many programs and services that require a wide variety of skills… perhaps one that is just right for you. Volunteer today and make a difference.

English Conversational English

Connect English is a conversational English program that connects volunteers with refugees seeking to develop spoken English skills and build friendships across cultures. Connect builds functional English to assist social inclusion and offers friendship and cross-cultural exchange between volunteers and participants.

Fundraising Opportunities
