Important information about how to get involved and eligibility to volunteer in 2023
Due to high demand, late applications will not be accepted.
Mission Australia is committed to the safety of our volunteers and to ensuring our national volunteering guidelines are followed at all times. For these reasons, we cannot accept applications from people who will be under 18 years of age at the time of volunteering.
As this day is first and foremost about bringing hope, compassion and celebration to some of the most marginalised and disadvantaged people of Perth, and due to the busy nature of these volunteering permissions, it is not feasible for parents or guardians to fulfil their volunteering commitments while simultaneously ensuring adequate supervision of their children.
You can bring your children on the day but, you must ensure there is an additional adult (18 years old+) to supervise them at the event.
We understand this may be disappointing for families with minors who may which to be involved and, in turn, we thank you for your understanding on this matter.

How else can you help?
The event relies on the generosity of the Perth community, both as volunteers as well as contributing financially or through services in kind.
Through the support of individuals, families and Perth businesses, we can work to ensure no one is alone on Christmas Day.
