You'll be working with marginalised and excluded people to make their lives better. You might be fighting for recognition of needs for mental healthcare, challenging perceptions about people with disabilities or helping people access government services. Whatever you do, your input will help to shape communities for the future and improve quality of life.

Community and social development roles include:

  • Community workers
  • Social workers and managers

"We just need people who are willing to act as a voice or an instrument for things to change for the better. Volunteering is a way to do this.  I was also able to see what I am really capable of and areas of my skills I could improve. It's an unforgettable experience that I will treasure for life." -  Hesed Jacela, VSO volunteer in the Philippines
