A volunteer can make a huge difference in the life of another person. Thousands of Australians put up their hands to help in times of emergency, flood and fire. Friendly social support for others can be just as important. We can all be local community service volunteers, all it takes is a phone call and a chat. Join our friendly, enthusiastic team - phone Margaret on 9885 3815 if you would like to do your bit for your local community this year. We follow the Department of Health (Home and Community Care) Active Service Model which means a client-centered approach, encouraging individuals to remain active, make their own independent decisions, and be socially connected.

Volunteer for just a few hours a week - give back - gain skills, confidence and have some fun! Be part of something positive. Make a difference.

Please phone Margaret on 9885 3815 or email for more information.

    Your support can help to create a better life for people aged over 55 and for mature aged people with a disability who live in our local area. Your assistance will help our clients remain healthy, fit and involved in their community. It will also assist Ashburton Support Services in the purchase of much needed equipment to extend our range of services and activities. Please donate now.
