Volunteer opportunitiesVolunteer with us

Volunteers are a really important part of the holiday and recreation services and often are the main reason people with a disability are able to have a holiday. Volunteers provide some extra support for our clients and having an extra person can often mean that our clients get to experience all they want from their adventure. If you are interested in finding out about how to register, train and get involved with the holiday and recreation program, click on the "Volunteer" button to the right to find out more.
