The Warwick Benevolent Society Inc welcomes the support of volunteers who share a wide and interesting range of skills and attributes with our residents and clients.

“You give but little when you give of your possessions.  It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”  (K. Gibran 1883-1931)

There are many benefits of volunteering:

  •     Helping others
  •     Developing friendships
  •     Contributing to the community
  •     Sharing and developing knowledge and skills

Volunteers have a valuable role to play in extending our care services and assisting employees in the provision of quality care services.

Volunteers assist in the provision of the following activities:  Gardening, cards, craft, religious services, games and quizzes, cooking, music, poetry, reading, story-telling, and 1:1 individual activities.

If you have some spare time during the week, you might consider spending some quality time with our residents.

If you wish to express an interest in volunteering please contact Administration who will put you in contact with the Diversional Therapists.
