People volunteer for many different reasons and in many different ways. There is a great deal of satisfaction that comes from making a difference to other people in your local community.

Get-Involved

Volunteering offers many other rewards too. You can learn new skills and gain valuable experience in a wide range of areas. It’s also a great way to meet new people who share your interests.

At GLCH you can volunteer as much or as little time as you want, depending on your role. Once a week, once a fortnight, a month – whatever suits the individual.

Volunteers can contribute in the following areas:

  • Delivering meals on wheels
  • Transporting people to medical appointments
  • Assisting a planned activity group
  • Delivering a book as part of our home based library service
  • Reading a book to someone
  • Going for a walk with someone
  • Helping with community arts projects
  • Supportive Care (providing support to people who are receiving home based nursing)
  • Simulated client activities (pretending to be a patient to help student learning)
