Volunteer opportunities with Touching Base

There is a range of volunteer work available at Touching Base.

Recruiting NOW – Referral List Officers

Touching Base Referral List Officers have the critical role of providing referrals to people with disability and support staff and responding to enquiries via phone or email regarding referrals.

Referral List Officers are required to handle unique enquiries of a highly personal and sensitive nature. They may also be required to address sexual issues that may be challenging for the person making the enquiry to communicate about.

So we are looking for one or two new volunteers who really want to make a difference by becoming a Touching Base Referral Officer. This is engaging and meaningful online work that requires a commitment of up to three hours a week.  

If you are interested in applying for this role, please follow this link to the full position purpose and description and instructions on how to apply.

Other volunteer opportunities

In particular, currently we seek the support of people with skills in:

  • Graphic design
  • Risk management
  • Project management

All volunteers need to hold individual membership of Touching Base.

A mature and open mind is required, along with a high level of comfort discussing sex and related issues is required.

Touching Base looks forward to all applications and encourages people with disability and/or sex workers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities to apply.

If you would like to become a part of the Touching Base team, we are excited to hear from you. Please send your resume and a cover letter to operations@touchingbase.org. Don’t forget to tell us a little bit about yourself and why you would like to volunteer for Touching Base.
