Volunteering programs

Volunteers at Women's Information Service (WIS) are highly valued and make a difference to the lives of many women in South Australia. The WIS volunteer program offers comprehensive training, mentoring and support to make sure your volunteering experience is the best it can be.

Our volunteers work with women from all different walks of life, and currently WIS has three areas of volunteering.

Aldinga Beach Children's Centre (Applications have closed)

WIS offers volunteers the opportunity to work as a valued member of the team via Aldinga Beach Children’s Centre . This involves providing information and referrals to women who visit the Children’s Centre in a number of ways such as being available in the reception area, working with groups and working with Children’s Centre staff to provide information.

We provide a comprehensive 2 week training program, mentored shifts and ongoing support. WIS is a supportive team to all of our valuable volunteers.

Family court support

Family court support

WIS Family Court Support volunteers attend court with women who don’t have friends or family to provide support. Many of the cases involve a history of domestic violence and the court process can be daunting and difficult to navigate. WIS volunteers provide information about the court and its processes, sit with the woman before and during the hearing and provide a listening ear.

We will provide you with a comprehensive 2 week training program, a minimum of 2 ‘Buddy’ shifts and a supportive work environment in a women-centred program.
