Calling all kind-hearted folks

With National Volunteers Week on us, there is no better time to consider how you can make a difference in your community.

Intereach, your local community services provider, observes this special week which runs from May 16-21 and acknowledges the significant contribution of volunteers in their strong desire to support others.

Intereach is also calling to people who want to give a little – or a lot of time each week – to make a meaningful impact on the lives of older Australians by supporting its Aged Care Services team.

Intereach Co-CEO Michelle Tai said Intereach volunteers made a real difference across the rural and regional areas of the Riverina of NSW and north central Victoria.

“Whether it’s providing companionship, social support, or assistance with day-to-day activities, their contribution helps provide quality care and support to those who need it most,” Ms Tai said.

“We’re incredibly grateful for the support and dedication of our volunteers, who help us to create a warm and welcoming environment for our clients.

“We’re always looking for more volunteers to join our family, to help us to provide the highest level of care and support to the people who need it most.”

“At Intereach, we believe that everyone deserves to feel valued, respected, and cared for. We welcome volunteers from all walks of life and will provide you with all the training and support you need to get started and will make sure that you feel like a part of the team from day one.”

Intereach provides a range of support services to older people, including home care, respite care, and social and community support.

“The team is dedicated to helping older people remain independent and connected to their communities while continuing to live in their own homes. We need your help to make this happen.” Ms Tai said.

Whether you’re a seasoned volunteer or new to the game, I­ntereach acknowledges and celebrates the success stories of our volunteers this National Volunteers Week.
