Make a Positive Impact - Join the TRISS Program Volunteer Team in Parramatta

Looking for a way to make a positive impact in your community? Consider becoming a volunteer for the TRISS Program in Parramatta! Our Outreach Program is designed to provide support and encouragement to consumers and carers through regular check-ins and friendly conversations.

As a TRISS Program volunteer, you'll have the opportunity to build meaningful connections with program participants, who will be able to choose the days and times that work best for them to receive calls. This flexibility ensures that participants can access the support they need, when they need it. Whether they're in a regional area and feeling isolated, dealing with social challenges, or just looking for extra support, this program can help.

In addition to the Outreach Program, volunteers will also have the opportunity to work with One Door Information & Support Line, a state-wide telephone helpline that provides assistance to callers who may live with or care for someone living with mental illness, or health professionals and community agencies. The helpline is open 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday, and volunteers will respond to inbound calls, email inquiries, and make outbound calls to help connect callers with the resources they need.

If you have empathy, a passion for helping others, and good listening and communication skills, we encourage you to apply to be a TRISS Program volunteer. Whether you're a student studying psychology, social work, or human services, or someone with lived experience as a consumer or carer, you can make a real difference in the lives of those who need it most.
