Community Services Regular - more than 6 months Somerset TAS

About this opportunity

VINNIES VAN: Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu from 5.30pm till 7.30pm with stops in either Burnie and or Wynyard.

Those who come to Vinnies Van are people experiencing considerable difficulty, including homelessness, mental health issues, isolation, drug and alcohol issues and poor self-esteem. For many, Vinnies Van is a reminder of the dignity, concerns and worth of people in need.

Our volunteers are involved in all aspects of the Van’s operation. People do not require any particular experience to become a volunteer. What is important is the acceptance of others, a sense of humour and a commitment to a just and compassionate community. Induction, support and training are provided to volunteers and at all times their safety and well-being is of the upmost importance. We want Vinnies Van to be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for you volunteering.
