Volunteering

The DOME Association relies heavily on the work of volunteers. The organisation was originally started in 1981 by a group of volunteers and since that time has operated with a small staff of paid employees and a much larger group of volunteers.

There are many reasons people volunteer to work with DOME and all are equally valued. Some volunteer as a means of maintaining and improving their workplace skills so that they will be in a stronger position in the employment market.

Others volunteer because they wish to contribute to the work of DOME, and at the same time participate in a friendly and worthwhile occupation. We hope you find your volunteer work with us pleasant and satisfying.

Roles for DOME Volunteers

Volunteers at DOME take on many different roles. These include:
• Reception  • Clerical    • Word-Processing    • Resume Preparation

Intakes of volunteers will take place at varying times, depending on the demand. If you wish to register, download, complete and send in the Volunteer Registration Form and we will contact you about our next induction.
