What are the benefits of being a volunteer?
Volunteering is a great way to learn about an organisation and give back to the community. While volunteers help others, studies show that volunteering is good for us too.
Sometimes volunteering can open up career opportunities. As a volunteer, you can enjoy a sense of achievement and fulfilment from helping others and supporting your community. Volunteering can also help you develop personally and boost your self-esteem. Another great benefit of volunteering is that it can help you to connect to, and better understand your community. You can also meet new people and make new friends as a volunteer, opening up a world of opportunities.
We assist the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our community. Our services support people of all ages, from the very young in our early learning centres through to those in our aged care homes. We stand alongside people living with a disability, and help families, children and young people with a range of targeted programs.
Volunteers play an important role in these services to our communities by bringing skills and new perspectives to our work. You’d be joining a team of over 2500 likeminded people generously giving their time. As a not-for-proﬁt, your valued input means we can reach many more people, and we couldn’t do it without you.
