Volunteering

Foyer Oxford employs some incredibly skillful and committed people who support our fantastic residents. That’s the good news. The great news is that there is still space for you to get involved!

Sometimes we might be looking for help to enhance the work we do by involving volunteers in one-off events and activities. We also have longer term opportunities for a few special people who have the skills, knowledge and commitment to be a part of someone’s Foyer Oxford journey.

We are particularly keen to hear from Leederville locals, because local links are very important to us. We also have some specific options for employees of BHP Billiton, who are one of our major supporters.

At Foyer, we are dedicated to making sure that our volunteer opportunities accurately respond to the needs and interests of our diverse community. For this reason, our roles will often be quite specific and there may not always be a role that aligns with your skillset and interest.

At the moment, we are looking for reliable and passionate volunteers to join our RYDE program as driving mentors. If none of the current opportunities listed below suit you please check back later, as we update this page as new opportunities become available.

Please note, if you are a student and looking for work experience or a placement, please go to the Student Placement page here.
