Volunteer with us and help make a positive difference in the lives of people living with disability.
How can I help as a Therapy Group Volunteer?
Work alongside therapists to facilitate therapy groups that help children and adults with disability develop their skills and achieve their goals.
Are you a student?
We work closely with Universities and tertiary education bodies to offer practical placements for allied health students. We do not offer placements at the request of students. If you wish to complete a student placement at Therapy Focus, please speak with your University or tertiary education body. Alternatively, we encourage allied health students to volunteer with us.
We do not offer work experience for high school students, however, young people aged 13+ are encouraged to volunteer with us. Parent/guardian supervision is required for young people aged 13-14, whilst parent/guardian consent is required for 15-17 year olds.

When applying for a volunteer position, we may ask you for the following information:
