Volunteering improves your health and wellbeing

Did you know that?

  • 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.

  • Dianne and Georgia started as volunteers and enjoyed the experience so much they decided to study Certificate 4 in Disability Services. After completing they will be employed by Marriott.
  • Bill and Rohan, two retired men who are friends and enjoy tennis; they volunteer with our tennis group at a local club, once a week.
  • We host over 40 corporate volunteers over the year, from large to smaller companies

We support our volunteers. You will work alongside our staff and our Volunteer Co-ordinator will manage your placement with professionalism.
