Aged and Disability Care Coffs Harbour – Register as a volunteer with Linked to Life. Call us now to find out more or register online. Registering as a volunteer is easy. We will give you one of our Volunteer Packs, containing all the information you need to begin your volunteer journey with us, or you can access the volunteer pack online. Our Volunteer Handbook contains comprehensive information about what to expect as a volunteer – your rights and responsibilities, our policies and procedures and other important information about the role of a volunteer.
One of our friendly team will meet with you to discuss your availability and preferences and work out a volunteer plan that is tailored to your lifestyle, and assist you in filling out the registration form and other documents. As a government funded organisation, all volunteers are required to agree to undergo a national criminal check, prior to commencement. Volunteers who use their own vehicles to transport clients are also required to have proof of current driver’s license and vehicle registration. If you have a driver’s license but no access to a vehicle, we can arrange for you to use one of our service-owned vehicles. Once this process is complete, you are ready to start volunteering.
Staff will work closely with you to set you up and provide orientation to your volunteer role, personally introduce you to our clients and provide ongoing support and assistance to ensure your volunteer experience is positive and rewarding.
As a volunteer with Linked to Life, you can expect to be treated with respect and be valued as an important part of our team. You will have opportunities to provide feedback and make suggestions for improvements. Regular training is provided free of charge to all volunteers to enable you to feel confident and comfortable in your volunteer role, and we also hold frequent informal volunteer events that enable volunteers to meet new people, raise issues or ask questions. Linked to Life staff are always on hand to provide guidance and support, and enjoy sharing a close relationship with all our volunteers. Our volunteers have rights and responsibilities that are carefully explained to you prior to your commencement with our team.
