CAMDEN COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERING
The Camden Community Centre offers a wide variety of volunteering opportunities. Volunteering enables people to share their experience and skills with others while contributing to their community.
Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation that makes the magic happen!
People volunteer for many reasons:
Making connections with other people
A chance to develop new skills
Taking on new challenges
Creating pathways to employment
Because they just want to give to their community
Our major volunteer programs include:
Men's Woodwork Shed
We have a good size work area with work benches and modern equipment. If you enjoy woodwork, come along and enjoy a social day, meet new people and have fun.
Our men's shed volunteers also support the centre with repairs and maintenance of our facilities - so there's involvement possibilities everywhere!
Our op shop is staffed entirely by volunteers and is open 3 days a week - Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 10:00am to 2:00pm. We also open on the first Saturday of the month from 9.00am - 12.00pm. It's a great place to work in a supportive and friendly environment. The shop supports the local community by providing clean quality men's, ladies and children's clothing, household items, books, linen, bric-a-brac and much more.
Apart from retail selling, the work includes sorting through our donations and maintaining the shop.
Short of space in your home? Come along and join our community gardeners. Raised garden beds are available for $2.00 per week to grow your own vegetables and herbs. The fee includes soil, fertilisers and equipment.
Social Programs and Centre Support
In addition to the activities above we could not function without the valuable support of volunteers in every area of our centre, such as:
Our (CHSP) Commonwealth Home Support Program, helping out in the kitchen, in the social programs and driving our bus
Grounds and garden maintenance
Board of Management membership
If you would like to volunteer please fill out the form and send it back to us. Ensure you also read the Policy form.
