About the Role
Being a non-profit program, BUCC relies heavily on volunteers. BUCC is fortunate to have a dedicated team that go to great lengths to support the work of the Centre. We really couldn’t run all the activities we do or support the number of clients we have, without our volunteers – and we always need more!

Our volunteer work alongside our paid staff to enrich and empower the lives of our clients by:

  • Assisting with programs and arranging daily activities, outings and schedules; or
  • Sharing their special talent or interest in leisure and social activities.
BUCC is a lovely, welcoming and rewarding place to volunteer where you will meet many wonderful people and learn great new skills that may assist you both personally and professionally.   There are lots of other benefits to volunteering with us as well, such as:
  • We supply and pay for any security checks required for the position
  • Access to online and face-to-face wellness advisors
  • Free Flu Vaccinations
  • Exclusive shopping discounts
  • Being part of a team making a difference in the lives of people in our community.
