About this opportunity

Wesley Mission Queensland's Anam Cara Aged Care Community at Bray Park is currently seeking people interested in volunteering with our wonderful residents and assisting staff to truly make a difference to the lives of the older people we care for.

Opportunities exist for people interested in volunteering alongside paid staff in daily programs, activities and outings; and for people interested in visiting and becoming friends with individuals on a regular basis. We would also love to hear from you if you have a special talent or interest that you would like to share with the residents during their leisure and social activities.

You don't need experience to be part of our team – enthusiasm, cheerfulness, patience and understanding are just as important. In return we would like to offer you a rewarding and enjoyable opportunity to make a difference to the lives of others, meet people and learn some new skills!

Students looking for internship project opportunities are also welcome to express an interest with us. The position would be an ideal for Psychology, Social Work, Social Science, Humanities, Music Therapy, Allied Health students or anyone with an interest in gaining experience in the community services field.

We look forward to hearing from you!
