Kensington Neighbourhood House works closely with our community to promote existing programs, champion our neighbours and encourage participation.
Volunteers play an integral part in several of the House’s programs and operations. If you would like to get involved as a volunteer we are always looking for help in our various volunteer lead programs. Alternatively if you have other skills to offer don’t hesitate to pick up the phone or drop in for a chat.
The following programs are run with the help of volunteers:
Code Club – teaching children aged 9-11 computer coding and programming.
Study Support Program – help students from Prep to Year 12 with numeracy, literacy and general school studies
Help with form filling – assist people who need help filling out forms or understanding documentation
Conversations over the Front Fence – locals are matched with volunteers to have a regular chat on the phone. It is a chance to meet someone new and share stories.

“I love volunteering at the house because it means I meet people I wouldn’t normally meet during my day to day life. I also live away from my family, and I miss hanging out with my cousins and their kids – the programs I volunteer with make me miss home that little bit less”
