Experience personal fulfilment and satisfaction through volunteering

Volunteering benefits our local community – and also you personally!

The Australian Unity Wellbeing Index say that volunteers are the most satisfied Australians. The National & Community Service says that those who volunteer are less likely to suffer from ill health later in life. When you volunteer, you can give a boost to a cause you believe in; put a lifetime of skills and experience to good use; give back to society and enhance your health and wellbeing. Who knew that volunteering could do all of this?

Our volunteers say …

Not about being a ‘do-gooder’

Volunteerism has little to do with being a ‘do-gooder’. It is about … self-esteem and freely sharing one’s talent and wisdom; being valued, not paid; empowerment, growth and creativity; enhancing the community’s quality of life. It is also about having fun in the process.

Happiness, satisfaction & peace of mind

Everybody does something for themselves and their own families. But if you have time to spare, you get happiness, satisfaction, and peace of mind by achieving something or doing something for someone else. I have also come to know more about the community.

I just love to meet people

One of the reasons why I wanted to volunteer … was that I didn’t want to become a couch potato when I retired. I’m constantly in a learning mode. I just love to meet people.
