Did you know that?

  • Volunteers are happier, healthier and sleep better than those who don’t volunteer
  • 96% of volunteers say that it ‘makes people happier’
  • 95% of volunteers say that volunteering is related to feelings of wellbeing, even a few hours.
  • Volunteering results in ‘helper’s high’, a powerful physical and emotional feeling of helping others.

We have over 90 volunteers who take part in a range of supports like art program, gardening, swimming, cooking, and tennis at the local tennis club, outings, admin, beauty workshops and music groups, in small groups or 1:1. The options are almost endless. We like you to bring your interests and skills and personality with you. Volunteering can be a pathway to a career.
