Volunteering

We value our volunteers

Volunteers play an integral role in assisting to strengthen our service delivery, provide social connectedness to many of our consumers and are a valued asset to our organisation.  

Volunteering opens up a world of opportunity for people to build networks, connections, and make new friends in what can often be an isolated environment. Volunteering is part of the holistic approach to a health community, a healthy you.  

The broad range of support that volunteers bring to our Service can include:

  • Activities and entertainment for Aged Care residents, such as playing card and board games, organising football tipping, chatting about ‘days gone by’, playing the piano, gardening.
  • Taking our Aged Care residents to appointments or to external activities, such as seniors clubs and luncheons, medical appointments.
  • Assisting with the delivery of disability programs.
  • Distributing food parcels to those in need.  

We love to learn from our volunteers who often have specialist skills, experience and an abundance of time to share their knowledge in mutual agreed flexible commitments to suit their lifestyles.
