Making a difference
Volunteering is a great way to help others while making friends. The Uniting AgeWell ‘army’ is a strong band of helpers from all ages, areas and walks of life.
As a volunteer you have the opportunity to make a positive difference in other people’s lives, and in your own. Our volunteers tell us how rewarding it is to involve themselves in their local community and bring happiness to older Australians.
Our Volunteers are also involved in our Wishing Well program which grants wishes – big and small – to our residents.
By giving their time our AgeWell volunteers have the opportunity to use their life experiences to benefit others, learn new skills, gain work experience, make new friends and have fun.
Many different skills are needed, involving: driving, arts and crafts, music, gardening and office skills. Perhaps you might enjoy being part of a fundraising event or activity.
Encouraging student participation helps plant the seed of volunteering and creates intergenerational connections between young people and our clients.
The time you contribute is up to you, whether it’s once a week, once a month or once a year on a special project. And we’re open to new ideas too, so tell us what you think.
As a Uniting AgeWell volunteer you are given training, work with staff supervision and are covered by Personal Accident, Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance.
