Being a volunteer has lots of benefits for both the volunteer, people being supported, staff and the community. Volunteering has been linked to increased health and well-being and improved self-esteem, while also reducing stress, loneliness and depression. We rely on dedicated and compassionate volunteers to assist with many aspects of our operations.
Volunteers make a difference to the lives of people with a disability. Whether it’s a few hours a week or a larger commitment, it all makes a difference!
Volunteering at Waverley Social Enterprise is a truly rewarding and special experience. Volunteers are invaluable to our operation, bringing skills, diversity, friendliness and offering assistance to our workplace.
Maintaining high quality, meaningful employment, is imperative for our supported employees. It allows them to lead productive and fulfilling lives, whilst meeting other members of the community. It further lets our employees demonstrate their skills and work ethic to others, allowing volunteers to see their abilities and strengths.
We are a community within a community and welcome others to join us. Working alongside our employees in our registered not for profit charity comes with many benefits:
Waverley Social Enterprise welcomes volunteers from all walks of life. Volunteers are invited to work between the hours of 8:15am – 4:15pm. Volunteers are able to come in groups or volunteer alone. If you have any further questions about volunteering or would like to apply to volunteer, please contact our friendly HR team on 9544 7222.
Corporate or workplace volunteering has numerous benefits for all parties, the business, its employees, and the community. Volunteering can make a huge difference, both in the lives of the people being supported and the volunteers themselves.
Corporate volunteering can strengthen employee engagement, productivity and demonstrate a strong commitment to their organisational corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy. Corporate volunteering has been shown to boost morale, promote retention and job loyalty, promote employee growth and development, enhance brand image and create a positive working environment.
Employee volunteering promotes a healthy work-life balance and employee wellbeing.
Our corporate volunteering program enables any business to participate, regardless of the size or industry. Employees can volunteer individually or as a team. Volunteer projects can be carried out as a one-off event or ongoing long-term project/s.
The Waverley Social Enterprises corporate volunteering program provides an excellent opportunity to drive meaningful change in the community while promoting your business.
