Volunteer in Thailand

From time to time, we’re in need of an extra pair of hands. 

Occasionally there are opportunities to volunteer your support at Hands’ homes. This could include meal preparation, cleaning, reading and other useful tasks. As we are guided by the best interest of the children, volunteers to our orphanages are required to stay for a minimum of three weeks and obtain the Working with Children Check (except WA) and Police Check relevant to their state or territory.  You will need to cover your own expenses such as flights, food and accommodation.

We recommend volunteers are 21 years old or older. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis and certainly if you are under that age and have a travelling companion, that would be preferred.
