Thanking Our Volunteers

UnitingCare West has over 300 active volunteers who volunteer their time and skills across our vast range of programs.

National Volunteer Week runs from 21-27 May this year, and is an annual celebration that acknowledges the generous contribution of volunteers nationwide.

At UnitingCare West, the contribution of all our volunteers makes a vast difference to the amount of people we can assist every single day. With a range of volunteering roles, there are always different opportunities for our volunteers to generously support causes close to their hearts.

“Our community is time poor and many people are lonely and isolated so my volunteering provides support, friendship and a listening ear which makes a difference to people’s lives. Everyone deserves and needs friendship and volunteering provides extra help and attention to support. Whilst volunteering I contribute to the community knowing that I am making a positive impact on someone.”  Community Connections Volunteer

UnitingCare West would like to give a huge thank you to all of our volunteers, whatever role they play.  To find out more about how you could support your community and UnitingCare West through volunteering, contact or visit
