VOLUNTEERING

 

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.

 

People volunteer for many reasons:

  • Making connections with other people

  • A chance to develop new skills

  • Developing confidence

  • 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!

 

 

Op Shop

Our op shop is staffed entirely by volunteers and is open from 10am to 2pm each weekday and Saturday morning from 9:00am to 12 noon.  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.

 

 

Community Garden

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.

 

 

Program 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 Commonwealth Home Support Program, helping out in the kitchen, in the activities room and driving our bus

  • Grounds and garden maintenance

  • General 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.
