Give Happy Live Happy, National Volunteer Week 11th - 17th May 2015
We are currently in the middle of National Volunteer Week (11-17 May 2015) which is the largest celebration of volunteers and volunteerism in Australia.
It provides an opportunity to highlight the role of volunteers in our communities and to say thank you to the more than 6 million Australians who volunteer. 
Australian volunteers are essential to society, and many charities would struggle to survive without the support of their volunteers.

During National Volunteer Week The Board and Staff of JewishCare wish to express our appreciation and gratitude and to thank the 500 dedicated volunteers who provide such invaluable support to our clients through a variety of programs.

JewishCare’s Community Aged Services would like to acknowledge all volunteers who contribute to our incredible ‘Links Program’. The Links Program's volunteers provide social support to clients who are living at home and are socially isolated.

The support is usually by way of regular individual 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, or if you are looking for volunteering opportunities at JewishCare please call First Call on 1300 133 660.
