Did you know that if you are over 55 and on Centrelink Newstart benefits and you are struggling to find work that you can volunteer at an organisation like ours in place of job searching. Over 55 volunteers work two days a week (15 hours) to fulfil the requirements by Centrelink.
We also have many volunteers from the community who devote anywhere from half a day to days to aid us in our services to the community. Meet a few of our volunteers below who give of their time generously.
As a thriving community centre we are grateful and appreciate the time given by volunteers to service our call centre and reception at the Russell Island head office.
