Wide Bay Volunteers


There is nothing more Australian than Volunteering.

Community Resilience is in the hands of our Volunteers!


Volunteering

Give a Little. Change a Lot.

There are many different categorisations and definitions of volunteering. Ultimately, its about doing something for no pay, to help your community for the better. Volunteering should not be for a commerical enterprise, nor should a volunteer job replace a paid one. Volunteering is about building community capacity... We keep saying "Community Reslience rests in the Hands of Volunteers". Volunteering is about innovating new ways to use volunteering to build capacity....for the individual, the volunteer involving organisation and the community.

Some of our Volunteers

People who Give a Little. People who Change a Lot.

Who Volunteers? What kind of person are they? In our experience, volunteers have different skills, speak different languages, are different ages, and have different backgrounds. The most important thing that they all have in common, is the right heart. That means they are willing to put the needs of someone or an organisation before their own personal gain. They want to help a mate....

There is nothing more Australian, than helping out a mate!....

Mark


Mark works in IT.... he fixes everything... in fact, I dont think there is anything that we have given him to fix, that he couldnt fix. Old School skills that cant be beaten. Mark specialises in networking and hard to fix stuff. We could not function without Mark.

Liz


My name is Liz and I commenced volunteering in the position of Executive Assistant to the Manager in May this year. I previously worked in the Community Services Industry in the Aged Care, Disability, Child Safety and Mental Health areas for 18 years most of this time implementing quality management systems. Securing a volunteer role at Wide Bay Volunteers is extremely fulfilling and I look forward to the days I work here. The people I work with are lovely and I am being mentally stimulated and using my skills and experience to assist Wide Bay Volunteers implement sound quality management systems and achieve current best practice. If you are looking at volunteering I can highly recommend Wide Bay Volunteers. It is a great organisation doing amazing work for the Wide Bay community.

Graham


Graham started working at Wide Bay Volunteers in 2011. I have not previously volunteered for any other Organisation. During my 5 years here I have filled various positions including Events officer (looking after event management in the Wide Bay region. I have also been a Membership officer which involved looking after our members and finding volunteers for them also I have tried my hand at reception but I found this a bit boring for me so I have been a referral officer for the last 2 years . I interview people (volunteers) and match their needs with the need of our members I thoroughly enjoy working at Wide Bay Volunteers and have made many friends. As I approaching retirement age the things I think are important are good friends, peace and quiet and good health. I work on my health through good diet, no alcohol or cigarettes and having a positive mental attitude. In the past I was looking for a Paid full time work but I believe at my age it is very difficult.
