About:

Volunteers play an important role in our organisation, and we want you to be involved in order to provide social support to those who need this service the most! To keep pace with the changing environment in relation to COVID-19, our Volunteer Program has been modified so that volunteers can provide a service while maintaining physical distancing.

Virtual Volunteering allows you to provide a vital social support service to our clients, from the comfort of your own home!

Our virtual volunteers are donating their time using services such as regular voice calls, video chats and letter writing! Their delivery of social support is having a really positive impact to our senior clients and residents as well as people living with a disability.

Now more than ever before, elderly members of our community and people living with a disability, need our support and continued engagement to promote their mental health and stay socially connected.
