Volunteering

Getting involved

Contributing to volunteering is a great way to connect with your community, build social networks, maximise your skills and experience and improve your wellbeing.

Being community owned, volunteering plays an important role at Barossa Village. We recognise the significant contribution of volunteering to the quality and vibrancy of our workplace and the broader Barossa region.

Volunteering is inclusive, attracting people from all walks of life, of varying ages and different skillsets. Our youngest volunteers are primary school aged children, through to high schoolers, people studying to work in aged care and retirees themselves looking to give back to their community.

Where can I volunteer?

Barossa Village is always looking for volunteers to encourage the participation of clients in activities and to nurture their feelings of inclusion and wellbeing.

Volunteering opportunities include:

  • Working independently, one to one with clients
  • Participating in social interaction, working with our Lifestyle team
  • Working outdoors or gardening
  • Transport, helping to drive residents to appointments or Lifestyle Programs

Volunteers are required to have a Flu Vaccination and a Police Check.

Contact Barossa Village to learn about volunteering with us.

COVID-19 Update

From December 6, 2021, a person cannot enter an aged care facility unless they have received two COVID vaccinations or have a medical exemption. This applies to ALL staff, residents, visitors, contractors, and volunteers.

Prior to entering the Residency, you will be required to present evidence of your vaccination unless you have previously provided Barossa Village with these details.

Please support our Administration team by having this information ready to present on the day of your visit, or in advance.

Thank you for helping us keep our community safe and healthy.
