Volunteer

Volunteer With Us 2Volunteers have powered Doutta Galla Aged Services since the beginning. Founded by a community group in 1991, our volunteers are an important and valued part of our service delivery.

Volunteers bring skills, passion, knowledge, friendship, warmth and colour to the lives of our residents.

Doutta Galla volunteers gain expertise, develop meaningful friendships with older people and keep us connected to our communities.

We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities. You choose your own volunteer roles, and contribute as much time as you like. You are supervised by the Lifestyle Coordinator, but have plenty of scope to be creative and think big.

The weekly Pop-Up Café at Queen’s Park is a great example what volunteers can achieve. Long-term volunteers Gina Stolfo and Bev Shannon dreamed up a Parisian Café for residents and visitors, and now it’s making a profit!

Some of the other things our volunteers choose to do:

  • Accompanying outings
  • Running games and activities
  • Teaching art and craft
  • Running book clubs
  • Shopping
  • Providing music and entertainment
  • Men’s shed activities
  • Gardening
  • Fundraising
  • Skilled volunteering

We welcome volunteers who speak languages other than English; people from diverse backgrounds; all genders, ages and abilities. Volunteers undergo a police check and a formal induction process before they commence.
