Volunteering during COVID-19 

As a result of COVID-19, majority of volunteering organisations are suspending volunteer recruitment because of the high risk to volunteers infecting or being infected by the people they want to help.

You can help by doing the following:

  • Checking on your neighbours from a safe distance
  • Melville Cares are appealing to all members of the community who have local produce such as fruit and veggies (washed thoroughly with soap and water prior to bagging) or non-perishables like canned food that they would like to share with vulnerable members of our local community. Items can please be delivered to our designated drop off area outside the reception of Melville Cares (to avoid contamination) on the corner of Hammad & Adrian St in Palmyra between the hours of 8am to 9am.
  • Interested in being a Foster Carer for the Cat Haven? If so please contact Melville Volunteer Resource Centre, volunteering@melville.wa.gov.au for further information on how to sign up.
  • Donate food to Food Bank and Ozharvest
  • Visit the Volunteering WA Emergency Database
  • Visit Amnesty International Australia to find tips for #ViralKindness
