Become a Starick Op Shop Volunteer

IMG 5585

Are you an op-shopper? Do you have a passion and a flair for fashion? Do you like working with people? Do you like doing something you know makes a difference in the community?

Starick Op Shop is part of the Starick organisation, which provides safe refuge and support services for women and children who have experienced family and domestic violence. We provide clients with a range of services including crisis accommodation, housing in the community, advocacy services, outreach programs, counselling and life skills training.

The Op Shop has two main functions and that is to provide women and children in a crisis situation, with clothing, shoes, bedding, children’s toys etc.  It also sells donated goods and the proceeds from these sales, are used to fund services for the families in the refuges.

The Op Shop is extending its trading hours and we are looking for volunteers!  Work in an organisation whose vision it is to build futures free from violence, while developing new skills and know that your services makes a difference.

By working as a volunteer at The Starick Op Shop, you are:

  • Helping the environment
  • Learn new skills in retail
  • Add volunteering experience to your resume
  • Connect and assist with your community
  • Make new friends 
  • Receive discounts when purchasing from the shop
  • Have fun with fashion and decorating around the shop
  • Raising awareness of family and domestic violence in the community

Funds raised from the sales of donated goods, provide:

  • Funding for a community sporting activity or equipment for a child accommodated in one of our refuges
  • Support for an educational or development program for a mother or her children who are living in the refuge.
  • Funding for one hour of art therapy for a child who has been affected by domestic violence, to enhance their emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.
  • Support for a child in our school holiday program.
  • Funding for a baby massage program for mothers with young children.
  • Support for a mother to undertake a “Baby and Child First Aid Course”

The reality about family and domestic violence is:

  • One woman dies every week from domestic violence in Australia.
  • 1.6 million Women in Australia have experienced some form of domestic violence.
  • Escaping domestic violence is a major contributor to homelessness among women and children.

At Starick we ensure that we are responding to the needs in the community and that the needs of women and children are always forefront in our minds. As an organisation, with the assistance of the Starick Op Shop, we continue to change lives.

Fundraising Event: Craptastic Trivia

Our Craptastic Trivia Fundraising Event was a great success and loads of fun was had by all.

We would like to extend a huge thank you for the generous support received from everyone. This helps us to continue to make a difference in the lives of the women and children we support. We managed to raise just short of $3000 and this will be used to assist women and children who escape domestic violence, in particular those women who have no access to income due to financial abuse and other issues.
