At SWWFRC we run projects with a group of core staff, a team of CE workers (of which there is always space to join) and a dedicated group of volunteers. We are asking for people to join us – simply by offering their time. A few hours a week can make a huge difference to the services we can offer. Full training (if necessary) will be given. WE NEED YOU. If you can help, contact reception for more details. We look forward to having you on board.
SWWFRC are recruiting for volunteers to help with our weekly food cloud collections. Food cloud at present supports many families within our community. Please contact Sharon Kennedy at 051 389418 to express an interest.
