Disability Services One off - an event Launceston TAS

About this opportunity

If you would like to support people with Down syndrome and their families, this is the event for you!

Our small community event runs from 10:30am-2:00pm at Royal Park, Launceston. There will be entertainment and activities plus food and drinks available for purchase. Ideally we are looking for assistants from 10am-2pm, it may also be possible to assist for 2 hours if we have enough volunteers. Event is for under 1000 people so masks are not required (we usually expect up to 150).

Duties include:

  • assistance with setting up for the event (no heavy lifting) and directing entertainers/activities
  • help at entry to event - point out COVID conditions of entry, remind patrons to use QR code or manual sign-in, remind patrons if there is a queue at entry to maintain 1.5m distancing
  • invite passers-by if they would like to join our event
  • general assistance directing patrons and cheerfully helping everyone to enjoy the event
  • assist event organisers as required

We greatly appreciate assistance from volunteers. You will be contacted prior to the event to go through duties required. Help at this event will assist our members to enjoy a day together as part of the community. As a not-for-profit organisation we are grateful for funds raised from this event to support our families, provide professional development and training, be able to run dance groups and activities for our members, hold our annual family camp and to provide other much needed support and resources.
