ALMOST 500 South East Queenslanders are making a difference by volunteering with Centacare each year, doing a wide range of tasks across the whole of the organisation.
Our people volunteer for many reasons and in many different ways. Some use volunteering as a way of meeting new people, giving back to the community or even just to try something new. Others volunteer to gain experience or to add new skills to their resume. The main reason why our people like to volunteer is that they like to give back to others, they want to make a difference.
If you would like to make a difference and volunteer with us, give us a call on 1300 CENTACARE (1300 236 822).
