Giving Back To The Community
The amazing support of our generous 9,000 volunteers across Queensland who offer a few hours a week or even just once a month, give Queenslanders with a wide variety of support needs, the ultimate gift - the ability to live in their own homes where most are happiest and maintain a degree of independence and dignity.
While many retirees are active in our formidable volunteer family - and 'family' is what it becomes - the face of volunteering is as diverse as our clients. We have teenagers keen to do something for others, families who enjoy the focus of sharing a meaningful activity together, and business people who realise there is life outside the office.
Helping enhance lives is what it's all about. While on the surface, it may appear our clients are the ones who gain most from the service, it is clear from volunteer feedback that they gain a great deal of satisfaction from their involvement.
How To Get Involved
Volunteers may fill many roles from being drivers, delivering meals into people's homes or assisting in community kitchens. These roles are perfect for people who have a few hours in the mornings to early afternoon on weekdays. Others may be able to provide office skills, helping set up databases, writing newsletters or preparing promotional flyers for events. The possibilities are endless. No matter what an individual can offer, every bit of help adds up to a happier and healthier community. The generosity of our volunteers, who give their time to help cook in the kitchens, drive the cars, and deliver the meals, means we are able to provide a vital service at an economical price.
In light of recent Public Health Order, as of the 14th December 2021, all volunteers will be required to have received the required doses of Covid-19 Vaccination to participate in or attend any Meals on Wheels Service.
