Volunteer with SMART
We aim to help people make positive changes to their lives and reduce the destructive impact of drugs and alcohol on people and our community.
We couldn’t do this without the support of our volunteers: People like you who give their time and energy to help people to turn their lives around. But the relationship works both ways. We work hard to make sure our volunteers learn new skills and get the support they need.
We value our volunteers
“Volunteers are essential in enabling SMART to deliver successful and sustained outcomes for our service users. Your time, skills and personalities are integral to SMARTs achievements.”
Jon Perry, CEO

“I get real sense of achievement when I know that I have helped [someone] on their way to become alcohol or drug free. I feel privileged.”
