Volunteering Enriches Your Life
Volunteers are the heart and soul of Community Care Durham. Our success depends on their generous contribution and commitment in providing the necessary services and support to our clients throughout Durham Region. Their dedication makes it all possible.
Many of our volunteers have found that volunteering has enriched their lives in many ways:
Make a difference in someone's life
Provide a positive and immediate impact to the local community
Experience great satisfaction knowing they are helping others
Share knowledge and abilities
Learn new skills and training opportunities
Volunteers receive orientation, training and ongoing support. To ensure the safety and high quality of our services, volunteers are carefully screened. A Police Reference Check (including vulnerable sector screening), three references and a Driver Abstract (if driving clients) are required. The volunteer process also includes a personal interview and the completion of an application form. To begin the process, please complete the volunteer form and a staff member will be pleased to contact you shortly.
We invite you to join our very special team of volunteers. Whether it is a few hours a week or a few hours a month, you can make a difference in someone's life. As a volunteer with Community Care Durham, you can determine your level of availability and we will work together to develop a volunteer schedule that is mutually beneficial.
