FamilyCare is a non profit organisation and as such we rely heavily on volunteers and financial assistance from the communities our programs service.
All our Services require Volunteers to assist the work of FamilyCare. The Disability Support program would not be able to provide recreational activities for children with disabilities if it were not for the great support they receive from Volunteers.
We provide the best possible programs to benefit families, individuals and children and we seek your assistance to keep our programs running.
The Volunteer Program seeks to work in collaboration with staff and the services offered at FamilyCare to supplement and enhance the programs that are a resource to families and individuals within the community. Volunteers are available for families or individuals to assist them to reach their identified goals.
Volunteers may work with:
- individuals, children or families, either in the home of the client or in the community with the Child and Family Services program,
- in our Carer’s Support and Disability programs
- in our IntoRec programs as a Peer Support Volunteer
- in our agency’s second hand book shop in Shepparton – The Book Inn
