About this opportunity

We are looking for 2 -3 volunteers to join us to assist with clients on bus outings - shopping or to different events around the Perth Metro area. You'll need to be fit and well and love chatting to a variety of people. We'd also love you to bring with you ideas for stimulating activities for our clients if you have any. We run regular activities so you'll be keen to commit for most of a full day when you're available. You need to be happy to assist with washing the dishes or hamming it up on our karaoke machine! . You can volunteer once a week, once a fortnight or once a month and we're also happy to support volunteers who may be on a FIFO roster who want to reconnect to the local community.

If you have Centrelink commitments we are able to offer you regular hours to help with your obligations
