We have a number of really exciting Volunteering opportunities available at BASScare.  If you are looking for ways of giving back to your local community and to truly make a difference in your neighbourhood we have just the role for you. The feel good factor of bringing a smile to the face of an older person when you drop off a hot nutritious meal or assist with an exercise class or an activity is immeasurable!!

We make the application process as easy as possible to fulfil that new year’s resolution of doing something for your community and giving back.

At the moment we are urgently requiring Meals on Wheels volunteers to deliver meals in the Boroondara area.  

So if you have two hours once a week or once a fortnight available to volunteer please give us a ring on 0447 503 741 or email d.hall@basscare.org.au

 

 

We are seeking Meals on Wheels Volunteers!

If you know of anyone that is interested or available 2 hours a week to help our local older community, please contact our Volunteer Engagement Coordinator Deb Hall on 0447 503 741.
