Act: Volunteer and contribute

The Brotherhood receives support from generous people who come from many different backgrounds and walks of life. Our organisation was formed and is nurtured by the efforts of our community: people who want to help disadvantaged people to build a better life for themselves and their families.

Get Involved at the Brotherhood of St Laurence

Much of our work is made possible through the contributions of generous individuals and partner organisations.

Without their assistance – whether in the form of financial commitments, gifts of goods or contributions of time, skills and enthusiasm – we could not be the dynamic community organisation we aim to be.
