Currently, we have volunteers in a range of positions, including:

  • administration support

  • fundraising
  • communications and marketing
  • database management
  • research projects
  • storytelling
  • social media
  • web development and content management

The benefits of volunteering include:

  • helping to support people living with ME/CFS

We welcome volunteers from all different backgrounds. If you would like to apply for a volunteering position with us, click below to fill out the form and tell us a little about yourself.


If you are offered a volunteering position, you will be required to undergo a police check. This will be at Emerge Australia's cost. Depending on the position, you may also be required to obtain a Working with Children's Check. Our volunteer coordinator will let you know if your position requires this.

Skilled Volunteers

Emerge Australia is an organisation that thrives with thanks to the support of our dedicated team of volunteers. As the organisation has grown, the need for skilled volunteers has gained momentum. Skilled volunteers are people who have a specific area of expertise, formed through either work experience or education. Skilled volunteering with Emerge Australia provides an avenue for current professionals, or those no longer working, to make a meaningful difference for people living with ME/CFS.

Positions for skilled volunteers will be advertised as they become available, with recruitment following a similar process to that of paid employment.
