Volunteer With Us

Our Lady of Consolation Aged Care & Services supports older people across western Sydney, in their homes, in local community centres through our GYM programs, through low-cost housing in Toongabbie and at our Residential Campus in Rooty Hill. Volunteers have always been a valued component of Our Lady of Consolation’s care community. Each volunteer’s experience at Our Lady of Consolation is as different as they are.

Volunteers bring different skills, experiences and interests to their time with us, they meet with different clients and residents, and work alongside different staff members. We want our volunteers to find roles that are as unique and valuable to them as they to us.

Volunteer Opportunities in Residential Care

Over the years OLOC has looked to the local community for volunteers to keep our residents connected to meaningful relationship-based care and companionship.

We are looking for passionate, caring people to visit with residents at our Residential Campus in Rooty Hill. You will receive training and support from our experienced team.
