International Volunteer Day – December 5th 2014

International Volunteer Day (IVD) is mandated by the UN General Assembly and is held each year on the 5th of December. It is a day for volunteers and volunteer based organisations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values, and to showcase the difference they make in their communities.

On 5 December 2014 join us in acknowledging and enhancing people’s participation, engagement and voice, in shaping our nation and the world we want through the spirit of volunteerism.




 

This years theme is:
                                                  
JewishCare’s Aged Services would like to thank all volunteers who volunteer for our Links Program and other volunteer programs offered by JewishCare.

The Links Programs volunteers provide social support to clients who are living at home and may be socially isolated.

The support is usually by way of regular one to one activities which may include:

· Home visiting
· Help with correspondence
· Reading
· Going for a walk
· Going out for coffee
· Playing games e.g. Chess or scrabble

If you or someone you know may be of benefit from the Links Program please call JewishCare’s First Call on 1300133660.

We are always looking for new volunteers for our
Links Program
so if you are interested in becoming a volunteer please call First Call on 1300133660.
