VOLUNTEERS

The Leisure Company welcomes volunteers to our service, as we recognise the many skills volunteers can contribute. These skills and talents allow The Leisure Company to offer a better service to our consumers. That makes you very important to us!
 
The Leisure Company has volunteers assisting staff and service users in group activities during the day from Monday to Friday and the Recreation program has many volunteers who are involved in the various social and sporting activities. This provides support for staff and allows for integration as service users participate in activities alongside other community members.
 
The reasons for volunteering can be many and varied. Many people enjoy volunteering as they feel like they are contributing to the community.  Here are some more reasons to volunteer.

 ·         Gain real work experience

The Leisure Company would like to thank all our volunteers for their ongoing help and support.
