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.

For information about becoming a Uniting AgeWell volunteer, contact 03 9251 5219 for Victoria, or 03 6208 3208 for Tasmania, or email

Recognising our volunteers

Philip Bezemer runs a weekly indoor bowls activity at Box Hill Community and often spends additional time visiting residents one-on-one.  Philips enjoys playing Scrabble with his friends or popping in for a chat with them during the week.

“The people I speak with have many, many years of stories to tell,” Philip said.

“I enjoy hearing about their careers, families, stories of growing up in another country or their experience of war time.  I also have the opportunity to share stories about my own life or discuss things that are happening in the news.”

As a retiree, doing something meaningful each day is highly important to Philip.  On days when he volunteers at Box Hill Community, Philip always feels like he has made a worthwhile contribution.
