CPL Volunteers contribute to our mission of an inclusive society for all people; extending social connections with clients, reducing social isolation; and enhancing CPL services by sharing skills, time and mutual interests. We are always looking for volunteers to come and join our team, so we'd love to hear from you!

Are you an octave above when it comes to music? You could be instrumental to our awesome music program!
CPL’s Gladstone service has got their ears pricked for the dulcet tones of a volunteer Music Mentor! If you’re a groove maker with an unrivalled passion for all things musical, and are ready to share your vocal skills or talent in playing a musical instrument join our budding orchestra and volunteer every Friday!
As the volunteer Music Mentor you will be:
- Supporting the studio facilitator with the music program
- Mentoring clients in how to play an instrument
- Encouraging and inspiring clients to pursue their musical interests
- Sharing your musical talent and expertise with clients and staff

You will not be responsible for:
- Any personal support; e.g. manual handling, personal care, administration of medication or meal assistance. These activities will be carried out by qualified support workers
This volunteer role will take place at CPL’s Gladstone service on a weekday of your choice (excluding Fridays), between 9am and 12pm. The volunteer and CPL will regularly review this volunteer role based on the capacity of the volunteer to assist on an ongoing basis and the needs of CPL.
You will be responsible for organising your transport to and from the location of this CPL role.
