Volunteer and work experience 

If you would like to improve your work ready skills you can volunteer at Bridge Housing. We are looking for volunteers who would like to get experience in an office based environment.  You might end up doing research; calling tenants for phone surveys; grappling with spreadsheets or mail outs; updating communications or helping us organise events. 

Come in for a chat if you are interested. If we don’t have something for you we can refer you on to one of our partner organisations.

Call Francesca on 8324 0844 or email f.cathie@bridgehousing.org.au.

Employment with our contractors

Our repairs and maintenance head contractors, SR Construction and Assett Group Services, and our lawns, grounds and cleaning contractor, Australian Facilities Landscapes provide jobs for residents under their contract with Bridge Housing.

If you would like to discuss these opportunities: 

Contact our Community Team on 8324 0844 or email: f.cathie@bridgehousing.org.au.

Advance Scholarships

Advance Scholarships are a new initiative to be launched later in the year. They are for tenants and their families to support training, education or employment outcomes; or to improve younger residents' experiences of school or university.

If you would like to learn more about these scholarships: 

Contact our Community Team on 8324 0844 or email: f.cathie@bridgehousing.org.au.

Streets Ahead bulletins

Our Streets Ahead Bulletins go out to all tenants who might be looking for work or are already in the workforce. They provide information about training and employment opportunities.

Orbit

Calling all Bridge kids: we need your help to launch into Orbit! 

We want to give younger people, aged 5 – 12 years, the chance to talk to us about what’s important to them, what they aspire to, and changes they’d like to see in their homes and their neighbourhoods.

Orbit is held during the April school holidays. This year it was held in partnership with Weave Youth and Community Services.

Snapchat us!

We are looking for keen volunteers from 13 to 17 years to help us keep this site going, so if you are the creative type and want to show off cool and interesting areas of your neighbourhood let us know.
