Make someone's day ... and yours!

Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, gain work experience, make new friends and have fun. Most importantly, it allows you to enrich the lives of others.

Volunteers support and enhance Uniting AgeWell’s programs and services in a variety of ways. Our ‘army’ of volunteers provide friendship, contribute to events, run Men’s Shed workshops, garden, support lifestyle activities, and carry out office administration, transport assistance, home visits and entertainment.

These people come from all ages, areas and walks of life. Volunteering opportunities are tailored to each person’s interests and abilities, while the time each volunteer contributes is entirely up to them. It might be once a week, once a month or once a year on a special project such as an annual event.

Uniting AgeWell provides all volunteers with training and on-going management support, as well as coverage for Personal Accident, Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance. Police checks apply for all volunteers.

Recognising our volunteers

Every day I volunteer at Kingsville Community is different.

Some days I spend one-on-one time with a resident as a friend, going to the coffee shop or out for a walk in the garden.  I also help the staff from the lifestyle team with activities and outings, or help the hairdresser at the on-site salon with whatever she needs.  Volunteering is the most rewarding work I’ve ever had.  When you do something and you see a resident smile as a result of it, that’s more rewarding than any money.
