Volunteer to improve access and inclusion

When you volunteer with Travellers Aid you help people with a disability or older travellers get where they need to go. 

If you value access and inclusion for all, you’ll love being part of our volunteer workforce.

Want to improve access and inclusion in Victoria?

We need your help.

Moving between train platforms and nearby transport zones is not easy for everyone.

Travellers Aid’s service hubs at Flinders Street and Southern Cross Stations in Melbourne and Seymour and Ballarat Stations in regional Victoria offer a friendly helping hand to people with disability, older patrons or those with ill-health or an injury.

Help improve access and inclusion in your community

Volunteers, just like you, make Travellers Aid’s free and low-cost support services possible.

Our service hubs in Melbourne, Seymour and Ballarat help people connect with public transport, navigate transport disruptions, get to their appointments and outings and enjoy Melbourne’s special events.

Our dedicated volunteers assist people with a physical disability, older travellers, people with ill-health or injury and those with less visible disabilities such as sensory processing differences, autism and anxiety more than 225,000 times every year.

Choose from a variety of volunteer opportunities

From transporting people between station platforms, accompanying them to appointments or helping them get into and around Melbourne’s big events, you’re sure to find a volunteer role for you.

As well as our variety of volunteering opportunities, we also provide excellent on-the-job training and support in a close-knit, busy and friendly environment.
