As a community organisation, we rely on supporters like you to help raise funds so our volunteers can reach out and provide support to vulnerable people that need it the most in our local community. When you donate you are helping us deliver programs and social impact initiatives that change lives.
All donations, big and small, are greatly appreciated by not only our team but the local residents who benefit from them most. You can be part of something important, helping us to continue to inspire and enable volunteers to provide life-changing support to vulnerable people when it matters most.
Donate now and change someone’s life for the better!
“I wanted to let you know that mum had such a great experience yesterday. She has been using a walking frame since we got home instead of her wheelchair. The experience really motivated her; although it’s difficult she’s actually using a walking frame. We’ll be back as soon as possible.”

For over 20 years, Volunteering Gold Coast uses volunteering to extend the reach and impact of essential services. We help support people living with a disability and seniors with transport needs, social outings, community visitor schemes, accessible beaches programs; and Not-For-Profits in volunteer recruitment.
Upskilling training is also provided to volunteers that are seeking to re-enter the job marketplace and workshops for other not-for-profits’ employees and community members. We ask for your help so we can continue to train our volunteers, keep these programs running and support our community.
Our vision is to create communities that are inclusive, purposeful, connected, and free from social, environmental, and economic barriers.
For years Volunteering Gold Coast has been impacting the lives of many in and around Gold Coast. You can see it on the smiles of the customers we drive around, or the cheer coming from someone who can finally access the beach and ocean.
In everything we do, we always aim to bring beneficial help to those that need it. Our volunteers are truly the backbone of VGC and we are so thankful for their ongoing help.

“I don’t have a car and I’m unable to use public transport. Your service allows me to get to appointments at a cost I can afford! Thank you so much.”
“I like the variety of places we go [on the outings]. Seeing as I no longer drive I get to see a lot of different areas and have a chance of meeting some interesting passengers.”
Koraley G – Social outings customer
“The service on the cancer bus is beyond reproach. It is excellent. The drivers are always so caring and Beverly is one in a million, the way she gets everyone everywhere they need to be. Thank you all so much.”
