Frequently Asked Questions

I would like to volunteer, what opportunities do you have?

We have very limited opportunities for volunteer work. Due to the nature of our work and the need to prioritise safety and confidentiality, we are unable to offer volunteer positions.

However, during the Christmas season, we do have a need for volunteers to assist with sorting and arranging gifts. If you are interested in contributing during that period please email [email protected]

While we may not have volunteer opportunities available within Zonta House, we encourage you to explore other avenues where you can make a difference. One organisation we recommend is Worthy Australia who heavily on volunteers all year round.

Additionally, you may find it beneficial to reach out to some of our other partner organisations who regularly provide valuable support to us, including:

What other items do you accept as a donation?

There are a number of items we are able to accept for the women in our services.

Everyday Toiletries (full sized)

All items must be new and unused.  Items in need are shampoo and conditioner, shower gel (no bar soap), deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste, facial moisturiser and hair brushes. We specifically ask for full-sized toiletries as our accommodation services provide long-term support to women.

Hotel “mini” toiletries: While we do not accept hotel toiletries for our accommodation services, we highly recommend donating them to drop-in centres in the Perth CBD area. These centres have shower facilities and can distribute the hotel toiletries to individuals in need.

Non-perishable Food Items: are able to accept all non-perishable food items that are within date. You could even arrange a Woolworths or Coles online order to be delivered straight to our Head Office!

Household cleaning products: Zonta House has a number of properties and cleaning products are always in need.  We are also able to provide these to women when they move into their own safe and stable accommodation.  Items accepted are, spray and wipe, toilet and floor cleaner, washing powder, cleaning cloths, paper towel and bathroom cleaner.

I am a student looking for a placement, can Zonta House offer this?

We have limited capacity to accommodate student placements due to the size of our organisation and nature of our work.

Currently, we only accept expressions of interest from students who are currently completing a relevant degree or higher in fields such as Community Services, Mental Health, Social Sciences, Psychology, or Social Work. These degrees align closely with the work we do and provide a strong foundation for meaningful contributions to our organisation.

Due to the high volume of requests we receive we can only reach out to successful applicants who meet our specific requirements and align with our current capacity for student placements.

We encourage you to consider alternative placement options and explore other organisations within the community service sector that may be able to offer you valuable learning opportunities.

The Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing directory which provides a comprehensive list of organisations and resources related to women’s safety, mental health, and community services.

Another useful directory is the City of Perth’s Homelessness Services in the Inner City Directory. These directories can help you identify other suitable options for placements.
