Forrestfield: Come & join our Op Shop and have fun also

Save the Children
Logo for Save the Children

Why volunteer with us? It’s fun. Whether it’s dressing a shop window, serving and chatting with our customers while you tell them about the fabulous items we sell, or sorting stock in the backroom, there’s a great social aspect to volunteering. You’ll be part of a great team. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, they are of all ages, friendly and dedicated, and just waiting to welcome you as part of our brilliant team.

You’ll be making a difference. The work that you do will be helping change the lives of children. All profits from our store support vulnerable kids here in Australia and overseas through programs that keep them healthy, in school and protected from abuse.

All profits from our Op Shops support vulnerable kids here in Australia and overseas through Save the Children’s programs that keep them healthy, in school and protected from neglect, exploitation and violence. And when disasters like bushfires or cyclones strike, we’re there to give them the care and support they need. In fact, over the last six years Save the Children Op Shops have helped raise over $30 million to support children and families in need in Australia.
