How did you get started volunteering with Lifeline Canberra?

  • I had some time available when work became less onerous and had been looking for some volunteering. I had previously volunteered for Red Cross with meals on wheels and through one other group but did not find either rewarding enough. Both of these periods ended when my mothers health declined and my husband started a new job which bought with it a house move and new responsibilities. When those responsibilities finished I looked around and chose Lifeline Canberra

What keeps you volunteering with Lifeline Canberra? 

  • That is simple – the wonderful staff. I have great sympathy for those who have to work with volunteers and the Lifeline Canberra team cope magnificently with the challenges. There is also a regular effort but the staff to provide opportunities for catch up and gatherings.
