Become a Volunteer

COTA Tasmania has an active volunteer program with many interesting and diverse roles available to volunteers.

The volunteer program enables members to take an active part in their organisation and assist with its continued development.

Our program is designed to have a dual role.  It seeks to use the talents, combined experience and skills of our membership base while providing opportunities for volunteers to engage in tasks where they can develop new or existing skills and actively contribute to their organisation.

All volunteers are provided with a comprehensive orientation program and training is provided on the specific program or area of work.

We pay out of pocket expenses and provide full insurance cover for all volunteers.

Become a COTA Champion

COTA Tasmania is the national leader in educating volunteers to spread consumer focussed messages for older citizens.

Are you interested in upholding the rights and interests of older people?  Do you have good links with your local community?

Are you a good communicator?  Why not become a COTA Conversations Volunteer?

The recent Aged Care Reforms offer consumers real choice and control over their current and future care arrangements.

A COTA Community Conversations Volunteer listens to older people, and supports them to navigate the aged care system.

This is an exciting time to be a COTA volunteer.  Your role will be to spread the latest news for seniors, sharing powerful messages, supporting older citizens to understand their rights, and how to maximise their choices about ageing at home.
