Volunteer

The work of the WA AIDS Council is possible, in no small part, due to our incredibly passionate, dedicated and talented team of volunteers. Around 100 active local heroes generously donate their time and skills to fulfil roles such as administrative support, community outreach and event assistance.

Volunteers are part of the heart and soul of WAAC, and have been since we were formed in 1985.

Volunteers support our work in many ways and are part of the WAAC team and work across all areas of the organisation including events outreach/health promotion, the Needle and Syringe Exchange Program, M Clinic, Freedom Centre, Inclusive Education WA, and Client Services.

Our volunteers are vital to our work, and are connected to our work in many ways and all  bring a desire to help the diverse communities we serve.

Monday, 18th May sees the start of National Volunteering Week. Check back in here to see some personal perspectives from our staff and volunteers and what volunteering means to them.

Our Mission

To minimise the impact and further transmission of HIV, other blood borne viruses and sexually transmissible infections. To reduce social, legal and policy barriers which prevent access to health information and effective support and prevention services.

WA AIDS Council would like to acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of this country throughout Australia, and their strength, resilience and connection to land and community. In particular, the WA AIDS Council would like to acknowledge the Wadjuk people of the Noongar Nation as the traditional custodians of the land in which our office is located.
