Every person makes a difference
Volunteers are ordinary, yet extraordinary people who give their skills, life experience, time and expertise to help others – but get so much back in return! Our volunteers come from all walks of life and all religious and ethnic backgrounds. We have university students, families, working adults, retirees, Jewish Care residents, their relatives and many more.
