Volunteer in South Australia

Our success in supporting our communities relies on the dedication and hard work of our volunteers. Our organisation was founded by volunteers and that strong connection continues today.

Volunteers at Thorne Harbour come from all walks of life; each bringing diverse skills to their roles within the organisation. Thorne Harbour has hundreds of registered volunteers who donate their time and energy to many of our program areas.

We are excited to grow our volunteer numbers in South Australia.

With your help, we can provide more support, activities, and services to our communities in SA.

We value the energy, enthusiasm and ideas volunteers bring. Plus, volunteering can give you a chance to learn new skills and make a difference to people’s lives, including your own.

Rainbow Connection

Our mission is to foster a sense of community, combat social isolation, and ensure that every individual, regardless of age, feels heard, valued, and celebrated. Rainbow Connection links volunteers to older members of the LGBTIQ+ community for social support.

By volunteering, you will:

  • Visit older people in their home or facility, and take them on walks and visits to local cafes.
  • Forge genuine relationships with older LGBTIQ+ individuals and become a positive presence in their lives.
  • Build lasting friendships, share experiences, and be a beacon of support for those who may feel isolated.

Your time and energy contribute directly to enhancing the wellbeing and happiness of older LGBTIQ+ community members. Our volunteer coordinators are well versed in onboarding new recruits, and will take you through everything you need to know, including best practice language, and some fun activity plans.

If you're interested, sign up to volunteer with us, and select Rainbow Connection as your preferred role.
