Building our team of volunteers

CatholicCare is building up its numbers of volunteers and we're finding that everyone benefits.

Volunteers have always been a valued part of our service delivery in certain areas, such as Multicultural Service Programs, where their contribution has been an essential component of our programs.

We've been busy recently engaging a larger number of volunteers with a wide range of skills, interests and abilities.

CatholicCare now has over 60 volunteers signed up and trained to assist our service delivery to families, emergency relief clients, childcare services, therapeutic residential care, administration and business development as well as multicultural services.

“Volunteers often tell us that they get much more out of their work than they give,” said Lina Vargas, a caseworker with Multicultural Services Programs, “and we know that our clients not only benefit enormously from the input volunteers have, but also by knowing that ‘everyday people’ are giving their time and efforts to help and support them.”
