About Salt Care

Who we are

Salt Care is a local, registered, not-for-profit, volunteer based Charity that provides benevolent relief to the homeless, the poor, the socially disadvantaged, those who suffer from mental health issues, the disabled, indigenous, elderly, and young people at risk. We partner with local organisations, businesses, and individuals across the South Coast to meet the unmet needs in our community.

Our mission is to provide immediate help and facilitate long-term assistance.

Why we do it

Salt Care understands that everyone needs to belong. We stand in solidarity with those whose dignity has been denied. We locate ourselves with the poor, the powerless and the voiceless. We stand with the disposable so that the day will come when we stop throwing people away.

Volunteer at Salt

Salt provides a unique opportunity to volunteer in the local community with a grass roots organization that gets in and gets the job done.

There are many and varied roles that are filled by an amazing team of volunteers and we are always on the lookout for people who would like to make a genuine difference to the lives of others.

With over 140 community volunteers who assist in the delivery of services across the organisation, Salt Care focusses a great deal of time, care and resources into the effective recruitment, induction, training, evaluation, and support of volunteers. This includes the provision of a trial process to ensure volunteers are the right fit for the organisation, share the organisation’s values, adhere to the organisation’s methodologies, and that they are assigned to the right roles. Ensuring volunteers are supported is key to the success of the organisation, and is the reason that Salt Care is successfully achieving its organisational objectives.

Current volunteer positions:

  • Volunteers for the 5pm-10pm shifts at Safe Shelter.
  • Cooks to prepare meals distributed to the homeless and disadvantaged in our community.
  • Tuesday and Thursday Salt Store volunteers to help distribute groceries to the disadvantaged 10:30am-1pm.
