Help out at Cabrini

Join our team of wonderful volunteers

Have some spare time? Why not give back to the Cabrini Community by volunteering with us? We’re looking for people to help plan and run various activities, from knitting to storytelling, reading, arts and crafts – anything you think residents might like. Volunteers should enjoy spending time with elderly people and be willing to commit at least an hour per fortnight. Before you start, we offer an orientation program to ensure you’re comfortable in the role. We’ll also conduct a quick police check.

Volunteering at Cabrini is a chance to make new friends, hear interesting stories about the past and learn all about elderly life. Many volunteers stay with us for years because they find it such a rewarding and worthwhile experience.

Donate some spare items from around the house

We’re also looking for a couple of things that you might have lying around, including:

  • Old tea towels
  • Medium to large ply wool – preferably in bright, easily visible colours
  • Quilt stashes or material offcuts that could be used for patch work

We’re also in need of medium or large handbags and baby nappies made from cloth. These will be used in Reminiscence Activities, which stimulate brain activity, encouraging residents to think about positive moments in their lives.

Thank you! Your subscription has been confirmed. You'll hear from us soon.
