Who we are
Connecting Communities Through the Power of Volunteerism
At Volunteering Gold Coast, we believe that anything is possible through the power of giving back and volunteerism. We recognise the significant value that volunteering brings to the community and aim to spread this impact across the whole of the Gold Coast.
Volunteering Gold Coast aims to drive social impact through initiatives which build stronger and inclusive communities.
Everything we do ensures that we not only increase the number of people we support, but also enhance the impact that our services have on an individual and the broader community.
- Volunteering: We are the Gold Coast’s only Volunteer Resource Centre, connecting and supporting local not-for profits and people in the community wanting to give back through volunteer recruitment, volunteer management support and free training and support for volunteers and organisations.
- VGC Transport Services: For over 20 years we have been offering affordable transport options for seniors over 65, people with disabilities and chronic illnesses and, more recently, NDIS recipients. This is championed by a team of volunteer drivers who are dedicated to providing a safe and efficient service.
- QCSS funded transport: Providing transport for people under 65 living with a disability and not eligible for the NDIS through the Queensland Community Support Scheme.
- Human Services & Community Support: Delivering specialised, evidence-based NDIS, Aged Care and Mental Health Services. Ensuring that Gold Coast residents are available to all opportunities available without any barriers in their way.
To create communities which are inclusive, purposeful and connected and free from social, environmental and economic barriers
