As an entirely volunteer run organisation, volunteers are critical to everything ALQ does. Without you, there is no ALQ.

Key volunteer roles include:

  • Office work - keeping our shop and office running, fulfilling orders, speaking to public, and helping with admin - even if you only wish to help out for a few hours once a month. We're especially keen for a couple more reliable and trustworthy volunteers to help with keeping our office open on Saturday mornings - even if you can just do a few hours per month.
  • Helping with information stalls or other public outreach such as leafleting
  • Campaigns and investigations
  • Helping online with research, submissions, or letter writing
  • Fundraising - from organising events or fundraising campaigns, to hosting your own cupcake fundraiser.

We also require people with professional skills such as:

  • Legal expertise (both professional advice, as well as help reviewing new laws or helping put together submissions)
  • Technical skills such as graphic design, web site, and video editing
  • Photography and videography
  • Other skills such as event organising, strategic planning, media, etc.

Please contact us at volunteers@alq.org.au if you are interested in volunteering, or come along to our next volunteer meeting.

You can also keep an eye on our Facebook page or subscribe to our email list for further details on upcoming events and opportunities to get involved.
