Give back to your community
Volunteers are extraordinary people who give their skills, life experience, time and expertise to help others. They are an integral part of the Jewish Care family. Our passionate and dedicated volunteers provide direct assistance to our clients and Elders through social, recreational, cultural and spiritual activities. They also support fundraising and community engagement, participate in committees and corporate governance and much more.
Our volunteers come from various religious and ethnic backgrounds and range from university students, families, working adults, retirees and Jewish Care residents to their relatives.
Our volunteering experience helps to improve community wellbeing and impacts the lives of many by:
- offering services that would otherwise be unavailable
- strengthening personal connections
- providing opportunities for the community to enjoy
- promoting a healthy community
- reducing isolation and increasing socialisation.
