The Shed is run entirely by volunteers, who give their time and skills to keep the group running and supporting our community.  We have an elected organising committee each year, and we also welcome volunteers who want to help out at any time.

Volunteer with us   

Because we meet online, you can volunteer to help from anywhere in Australia. We'd love to have more volunteers! If you're interested, post in our Facebook group or contact us using our online form!

 

You can volunteer at any time, with whatever skills and interests you have. The time commitment and type of tasks are fully up to you. We will help support you if there's something you'd like to do but need help to learn how! We have a list of current opportunities below, but if there's something you'd like to do that's not on the list please don't hesitate to speak to us about it.

Current opportunities 

Volunteer to join our committee   

Every year at our Annual General Meeting (AGM), members of The Shed vote for the organising committee for the following year.

To volunteer, you can either nominate to be part of the committee, or just come along to our online organising meetings and help out where you can.

To nominate to join the committee you need to:

  2. Fill in a nomination form (which will be available at the AGM)

Our elected committee roles are:

  • President

  • Vice President

  • Secretary

What volunteers do   

The organising committee meets on the first Monday of each month from 6:30 - 8pm.

During our meetings we organise:

  • Planning and running our monthly peer support meetings

  • Planning attendance at events like Pride, Midsumma, Chill Out festival etc

  • Running our binder programme

  • Applying for grants and funding

  • Running community activities and socials

  • Supporting trans people to run their own projects

  • Managing and moderating our Facebook group

  • Doing all the necessary admin to keep our group going, like paying insurance, and submitting our financial records to Consumer Affairs Victoria

The time commitment is to attend a monthly meeting that runs for 1.5 hours.  Any time over that depends on what you'd like to help with and how much capacity you have.
