People volunteer for a wide variety of reasons with the most common reason being that people just want to help others – but it’s also ok to want other benefits for yourself. We understand this and wanted to highlight some of the many benefits you can enjoy when volunteering with us:

United Disability and the people we care for love volunteers. Volunteers are an essential part of our client and employee community, with each volunteer within our organisation providing an enrichment of knowledge, community spirit, friendship, happiness and a much-needed support base. Not only do volunteers benefit from better health and well-being, we have seen a significant improvement in the mental and physical well-being of each of our clients and team members who have shared the company of our volunteers.
In addition to the personal development and benefits our volunteers experience when joining our community – volunteering is good for people who are looking to boost their career. The United Disability volunteering program provides all volunteers the added benefit of recognition and potential employment pathways.
