“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ―Margaret Mead 

Our volunteers have an incredible wealth of lived experience and are here to share their empathy and understanding to support you. 

They have also undergone training to better understand the different ways to support people and can work with you to develop the best plan moving forward to encourage safety and improved wellbeing. 

You are welcome at Safe Space as many times as you like. During these times you’ll find yourself supported by different volunteers, with different perspectives and past experiences that can help you on your journey to wellness. 

Want to contribute to community and turn your darkest moments into hope for others?

We are always recruiting new volunteers and value the variety lived experiences brings to our team. We create a supportive environment that will assist you on this new journey. 

So what do you need to be a volunteer?

– A lived experience is what drives us all. This can be your own experience, caring for someone or bereaved by suicide. 

– A Working With Childrens Check

– A National Police Clearance Check

– Suicide prevention training that we organise during the onboarding process. 

We have a dedicated Volunteer Coordinator that will assist you with these requirements and help you through the process. You can also do a shift to see if it feels right for you before you commit to the training. 

“It’s a special experience to see the Safe Space come from an initial thought to something that can now provide so much support to our community.
It’s an honour and privilege to be able to be there for those who need support.“

"Being a Volunteer at Busselton Community Safe Space has given all the hardship in my life a sense of purpose. I feel good supporting others and the other volunteers have become like my family, I have never felt so seen and heard as I do among this group!"

"What I love about Safe Space is the connection we have all made with one another. That deep understanding of our lived experiences creates a really incredible bond and a familial comfort which is so beautiful. I love that we are here for all people, in all situations."
