Studies show that people who volunteer are happier and live longer!
In addition, their gift of time and energy creates a positive outcome for their community and contributes to a vibrant and caring neighbourhood.
It’s not surprising to us. At Anglicare, volunteers visibly play an important role in enhancing the quality of our resident’s lives.
Anglicare has a diverse range of Volunteers; individuals from the local area, Anglicare residents, school groups, family members, corporate groups and other local organisations. Anglicare staff also enjoy volunteering during their free time.
You can get a lot out of volunteer work. You can use your talents, skills and experience to contribute to the wellbeing of our Anglicare community. You’ll discover a great sense of achievement and purpose in what you do while assisting staff and residents and becoming a valued member of our Volunteering Team. The added bonus is gaining new friends and confidence, while learning new skills.
Volunteers can assist with one-to-one visits, go on group outings to interesting places, help out with music, craft groups, indoor bowls, driving buses, helping in the garden and many more activities. You can help low vision groups with reading and writing letters, assisting with leisure activities, or you can help with other things including the computer club, listening library or kiosk. The opportunities are endless!
Anglicare also welcomes Corporate Volunteering and can work with your organisation to design employee volunteering projects and activities to suit small or large groups.
Training is provided for all volunteers and you will be supported in your role by the Volunteer Coordinators. If you would like to become a part of our Volunteering Team please give Anglicare Volunteering a call on 9421 5446, or enquire online, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
