Volunteering Opportunities

 

UnitingCare Goulburn North East offers positive and rewarding volunteer opportunities to the community and surrounds of Wangaratta and Albury / Wodonga.

 

Wodonga Social Connections

Social Connections is the opportunity to meet other people at a similar life stage with a common goal to stay as physically and mentally active as possible while enjoying something you like to do. It may also provide carers some time out from their caring role.

We offer a wide choice of existing activities and are happy to include activities of your choosing. The one phone number for participant or carer queries is 02 6043 9772.

There are a range of opportunities for volunteers to assist with activities.

Administration

As the number of people we support grows, the demands on our staff and administration resources also increases.

From time to time we seek volunteer support to complete non confidential adminstrative tasks such as:

  • compiling and binding handbooks for the people we support;
  • typing;
  • photocopying; and
  • folding and enveloping for large mail outs.
