Become a Mersey Community Care Volunteer today and join a dynamic team of people dedicated to enhancing the lives of others in our community.

Volunteers are supported from the first point of contact.

Potential volunteers are invited to participate in an interview with the Volunteer Coordinator who will explain what positions are available and will provide additional information about the organisation.

All new volunteers are required to obtain a National Police Check and Working with Vulnerable Persons Card.

We pride ourselves on making our volunteers part of  our dedicated and hardworking team.

Volunteer with us

Each month the organisation conducts a full day Induction Program for new volunteers.

Participants are provided with a comprehensive overview of each service and information about the rights and responsibilities of volunteers.

The Induction Program is conducted at Mersey Community Care.

New volunteers, who want to work in the Home Maintenance Service will attend Home Maintenance Proficiency sessions before actively participating in this service.

​As a part of Mersey Community Care's commitment to continuous improvement, the organisation provides regular ongoing sessions.

​We are committed to ensuring that  volunteers have up-to-date skills and opportunities to learn new skills.


Mersey Community Care is proactive in acknowledging and rewarding the hard work and dedication that our volunteers contribute to the community, on behalf of the organisation.

Each year, during National Volunteer Week, the organisation hosts an annual event to thank the volunteers for their ongoing commitment. Volunteers are treated to a luncheon with Certificates of Recognition, provided by the Devonport City Council. Awards for 5, 10 and 15 years of service to the organisation, lucky door prizes and entertainment or Guest Speakers.

International Volunteer Day falls on the 5th of December each year and Mersey Community Care combines the celebration of this day with our end of year function. Volunteers are treated to a BBQ lunch at our premises.  Again, this is our way of thanking our Volunteers for their contribution throughout the year.

Impromptu BBQ’s and morning teas are held throughout the year and are a wonderful opportunity for  volunteers to socialise with others and enjoy a yummy lunch.


The Mersey Community Care Memorial Garden is a tribute to our volunteers and staff members who dedicated their service to the community but have now passed.


The memorial garden was established and opened in May, 2006, by  Dr John Tooth, who was an original Founding Member of MCCA and Norma Jamieson MLC, also an early member of MCCA.

The memorial garden was designed by ex staff member Neville Munday and was created with the help of our dedicated team of volunteers.
