National Volunteer Week kicks off early at ReStore

Thank You Anglicare Volunteers

National Volunteer Week is celebrated across Australia from 11-17 May. Anglicare NT thanks our numerous volunteers for the time and energy they contribute throughout the year. The support volunteers offer makes a real and lasting difference to the lives of many people in our community.

Volunteers assist across Anglicare NT, through several programs including our donated good service and Aged Care Services. Aged Care Service volunteers assist with Meals on Wheels and a Community Visitors Scheme, which aims to enrich the lives of socially and/or culturally isolated residents in aged care homes and Home Care recipients. This is achieved by matching care recipients one to one with a volunteer visitor who visits a minimum of once a fortnight.

Volunteer Week was kicked off early at the Ludmilla Anglicare ReStore op shop on Thursday, 7 May. Nineteen Indigenous school students from Casuarina Clontarf Academy provided a BBQ for Anglicare volunteers and staff. During their visit the students from the Academy learnt about Anglicare’s social enterprises and participated in activities including sorting clothing, dressing mannequins, and a fancy dress competition.

For information about volunteering opportunities at Anglicare NT, phone 8985 0000.

Anglicare’s Meals on Wheels program in Alice Springs is currently seeking volunteers. Please contact Kate Lewis (HACC Program Coordinator) 89594400 for further enquiries.
