At Starlight, we provide laughter and support to seriously ill children and their families throughout Australia - and we simply couldn't do it without our generous-hearted volunteers. Since 1988 we’ve had thousands of volunteers help put smiles on children’s faces.
Starlight is committed to ensuring we provide a positive experience for all our wonderful volunteers. In order for us to do this we look for passionate, skilled and committed people and match them to specific volunteering opportunities.

If it’s only now and then, or a one off day for your corporate volunteering program, then sign up to our online volunteer community to see what’s coming up that you can get involved in! Events volunteers pick and choose when they’d like to get involved depending on other commitments. If this sounds like you sign up to My Starlight, our online volunteer community to view all the current events!

The Volunteer Recruitment Process:
For us to match volunteers to specific opportunities we need to complete a recruitment process. This helps us learn more about you, your current skills and experience, why you want to volunteer with Starlight, and to make sure we let you know what’s required of you as a volunteer.
We will also have to complete police and working with children checks. This process can take from 4-8 weeks once your application has been received.
If we are not able to match you to a volunteering opportunity when you apply, we will keep your details on file and contact you when a suitable opportunity becomes available.
The Volunteer Application Process:
Please make sure you have your resume ready to attach to your application before you commence the application process. Current opportunities are listed under the Apply Now button.
Volunteer Onboarding & Training:
As a Starlight volunteer you’ll have access to specific training to ensure you are equipped with all the tools and experience to do your very best. From time to time you may be required to attend face to face training sessions or complete online training to build on your skills and knowledge.
