Volunteer Testimonial

"When I first started volunteering at Wintringham, I was looking for some meaningful work where I could feel I was truly helping the community. I wasn't sure what I could contribute, but Wintringham created a position for me which made good use of my skills and knowledge. I'm currently helping a resident at Eunice Seddon Home who is creating his first cook book. We work together testing the recipes regularly. It's great that I can help him achieve his goals."

What's involved in Volunteering?

Wintringham values volunteer staff because of the significant positive impact they can have on the quality of life of people who may not otherwise have regular visitors. Most volunteers at Wintringham work within the Recreation Program. Each residential care facility has a Recreation Co-ordinator who also co-ordinates and supports the volunteers. We also run Planned Activity Groups at various sites where your assistance would be very welcome.

The Wintringham Recreation Programs facilitate the leisure lifestyles of older men and women from homeless backgrounds, many of whom have not had the recreational opportunities that others take for granted. 

For example, one of our volunteers took a resident out for coffee.  When they returned the resident was very excited and told the manager, “We went to a place where a waitress brought the coffee to our table and then came and took the cups when we were finished!" This was the first time this lady had experienced table service.

We advertise specific positions under the recruitment section of this website. If you cannot find a position advertised that suits your personal interests or skills, please fill the Volunteer Expression of Interest/Application Form below

We will be more than happy to talk to you about creating a tailored volunteer position based around your personal interests and skills!
