Be a Volunteer!

We are a volunteer-involving organisation. Helping hands are needed to complete general and specialised tasks. Through those tasks we hope to enable our volunteers to achieve their goals.

Our volunteers help to build our capacity and capability while working with members and staff. Together, we share our experiences and knowledge to achieve a mutually beneficial outcome.

Clubhouses are places where people with a current mental health issue can meet with their peers. With a structured environment that provides access to:
> employment and pre-employment activities.

> social ventures.
> social activities.
> peer support.
> mentoring.
> life skills development.

From humble beginnings in 2000, Canefields Clubhouse commenced operating with unpaid volunteers. It all started in a small private residence in Manilla Street, Beenleigh. They had zero funding and unpaid volunteers.

Today, the Clubhouse is an Incorporated Association with Charity Status operating from large and expanding premises.

Now we are one of fifteen (15) clubhouses in Australia. In 2011 Canefields Clubhouse received a three-year unconditional certification from the Clubhouse International. Making one of only five (5) ICCD-certified clubhouses in Australia. Proudly, Canefields Clubhouse was a co-recipient of the 2014 Hilton Humanitarian Prize as being part of International Clubhouse movement. In 2016, Canefields Clubhouse is prepared for re-accreditation from the Clubhouse International. This accreditation continues today.
