How to volunteer with us

Guide Dogs WA (and our parent organisation, VisAbility), have a dedicated team of more than 240 volunteers of all ages, all skill levels and from all walks of life in a wide range of exciting activities. Our volunteers are a vital part of our organisation, and help us to provide many of our important services.

By joining our team of volunteers, you can make a difference to West Australians living with blindness or vision impairment. You can also use this unique opportunity to learn new skills, meet and connect with new people and enhance your job prospects.

Volunteer at International Guide Dog DayRegardless of whether you can help out a few times a week or once a year, there’s a volunteering position that suits you.

“The best part about volunteering for VisAbility and Guide Dogs WA is the dogs! Having a dog nearby makes me smile. The clients are also a highlight, as I just love to help people. It’s given me a reason to get up.” – June, volunteer since 2014.
