PEO­PLE WHO CARE

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

A COM­MU­NITY based, not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, Peo­ple Who Care (PWC) was es­tab­lished in 1980 to as­sist peo­ple in need in WA.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion de­liv­ers sup­port to over 3500 peo­ple each year through the pro­vi­sion of so­cial sup­port, cen­tre-based care, do­mes­tic as­sis­tance, gar­den and home main­te­nance, trans­port, emer­gency re­lief, com­mu­nity sup­port projects, fi­nan­cial coun­selling, and em­ploy­ment and train­ing as­sis­tance projects.

When send­ing an ex­pres­sion of in­ter­est to PWC, vol­un­teer Sally was im­me­di­ately im­pressed by the prompt, friendly and wel­com­ing re­sponse to her mes­sage.

“I was also im­pressed by the range of dif­fer­ent op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able and that I could trial each one in or­der to find the best fit for me,” she said.

“I en­joy work­ing with PWC be­cause I feel truly val­ued and know that what I do re­ally makes a dif­fer­ence in the com­mu­nity.”

There are over 400 vol­un­teers help­ing PWC de­liver ser­vices with vol­un­teer roles in­clud­ing as­sist­ing in op shops, the home and gar­den.
