Volunteer with us
Volunteer in a social setting
Our volunteers play a crucial role in our social support groups across Gippsland.
They are not only there to lend a hand, but also they start conversations, offer companionship and share their skills with the group.
We have four social support groups across Gippsland that run for about five hours once a week.
Trafalgar – Monday
Morwell – Wednesday
Warragul – Friday
Wonthaggi – Friday
The groups are interactive – the participants help design the activities based on their interests and goals.
Activities include crafts, cooking, guest speakers, barbecues, day trips in Gippsland, coffee catch-ups and much more.
Jim has volunteered in our Morwell group since early-2021.
“My wife died four and a half years ago … it gives me something to come and do instead of sitting around doing nothing. I get out and I thoroughly enjoy it.
“You can sit and talk to each participant and have a laugh.
“I wash up and at the end of the day, I sweep and clean, it’s a team effort.”
