From helping in the office, to supporting events, providing entertainment, and taking someone out for a cup of coffee, volunteers are at the heart of Minda’s operations.
Providing generous gifts of time and talent, individuals and corporate volunteering groups give their time and support to Minda and have a hand in almost everything we do.
Who can volunteer?
Volunteers at Minda come from a diverse background and age range.
Some become involved with Minda as a stepping stone to gaining skills for employment, others to enhance social networks and gain a sense of personal satisfaction.
No matter what your age, skills, or experience, your volunteer contribution makes a difference.
As a volunteer you have the opportunity to assist people with an intellectual disability to have a better quality of life within their work and home.
Volunteering with Minda is primarily about people enriching and empowering the life of someone living with intellectual disability, while gaining a chance to:
- Develop and expand your skill base
- Meet new people
- Explore career development
- Discover training opportunities
Whether it is making time once a year or once a week, volunteer assistance always makes a difference to those in need.
Minda welcomes opportunities for corporate organisations to become involved in volunteer projects.
Volunteer Services will work with the corporate organisation to develop a project that will provide the opportunity for corporate staff to work as a team, utilise their skills, and be a part of making a real impact on the people that Minda supports.
Projects may include the refurbishment of a home or garden, or involvement in a fundraising or social event.
Specialised volunteering, where you can contribute your expertise and skills to enhance a program within Minda is also of interest.
This may be in IT, marketing, administration, or mentoring, if you have skills that you would like to contribute, please contact Volunteer Services to discuss.
If you are interested in signing up, please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Debi Carr, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 8422 6288.
