ECLC welcomes applications to volunteer with the Centre. Please read the following information carefully before applying.

Important Notes

  • ECLC is fortunate to receive considerable interest in volunteering. Applications for voluntary positions will be retained on a waiting list for six months. Applicants will be contacted if a suitable position becomes available.
  • ECLC requires a minimum commitment of six months to any volunteer position in the hope of building an ongoing and mutually beneficial relationship with all volunteers. As such, ECLC is unable to assist work experience students, short-term placement volunteers or provide supervision for professional experience.
  • ECLC is committed to recognising the invaluable and long-standing contribution of its volunteers. We provide a reference on request to eligible volunteers (see Volunteer Reference Policy)
  • Generally, ECLC prioritises volunteers who live within our catchment area. The catchment area encompasses the following local government areas:
    • Whitehorse
    • Boroondara
    • Manningham
    • Maroondah
    • Knox
    • Yarra Ranges
