Start a life changing journey and volunteer with UnitingCare West
Volunteers are at the heart of our work and make a real impact on the community.
With the outbreak of COVID-19, the need for volunteers is more crucial than ever. At UnitingCare West, we’ve had to change the way we deliver our services and how we connect with each other.
We’re developing “Let’s Talk” as a program for volunteering with UnitingCare West.
Let’s Talk will meet the ongoing need to connect, to show kindness and, most importantly, to help people who are currently doing it tough. It will also help connect our volunteers with other volunteers in these challenging times.
Social distancing doesn’t have to mean social isolation.
