Get Involved

Many volunteers dedicate their time to the Hobart Women’s Shelter every year to help make all that we do possible. These generous individuals and groups give their time and talents to support the Hobart Women’s Shelter and the women, and children we assist. There are many ways you can become involved as a volunteer at the Hobart Women’s Shelter.

Organize a Drive

There are so many ways you and your families, friends, co-workers or community groups can come together and make a difference to Hobart’s women and children – without even leaving your office! Every year the Hobart Women’s Shelter houses hundreds of women and children who need to have all of their physical needs met - so our needs for non-perishable foods, blankets, linens, shampoos and more for women and children sometimes seem never ending!

Help us stretch every dollar as far as possible at the shelter.

Here is how to host a drive:

  1. Select an item or items that you will be collecting (check out our Wish List)
  2. Contact property@hobartws.org.au for ideas and information.
  3. Set a timeline in which you will collect items.
  4. Make flyers and use Social Media to spread the word with friends, family, co-workers, peers, etc!
  5. Host one of our donation boxes or set a location in which people can drop off the items.
  6. Set up a drop off date with our administration centre by contacting property@hobartws.org.au or calling 03 6273 8455.

Thank you for collecting these much-needed items!
