Volunteer Week Event

Volunteers are the lifeblood of what we do here at In Great Company and we want to celebrate and thank you for the vital role you play in lives of seniors we support.  

At In Great Company we are delighted to celebrate our volunteers by holding a Virtual Volunteer Week event on Tuesday 18th May from 4:30pm as part of National Volunteer Week 2021. 

During this event we will be showcasing our latest video that celebrates the heart-warming friendship between Morgan and Alan, followed by a practical presentation on dementia awareness by Dementia Inclusive Ballina.  

This dementia awareness presentation will give you the tools to interact with anyone living with dementia, whether through your volunteer role or in your personal lives.  

The theme for National Volunteer Week 2021 is: Recognise. Reconnect. Reimagine.  

  • RECOGNISE, celebrate and thank volunteers for the vital role they play in our lives.  
     
    After a year where Australia has dealt with drought, devastating bushfires, floods and then a global pandemic, volunteers continued to dedicate their time and services to make our communities stronger, especially during times of need, crisis or isolation. 

  • RECONNECT to what is important by giving our time to help others and ourselves. 
     
    Volunteering has been proven to connect us to others in our local communities and better our mental well-being. When we help others in our community or give our time to a cause we value, we also give back to ourselves.  

  • REIMAGINE how we better support volunteers and communities they help.  
     
    In the current changing environment, where Australians are time-poor and experiencing higher degrees of uncertainty and stress, we need to reimagine how we do things. By adapting our volunteering practices and programs we can better support and engage volunteers to continue the necessary work that they do.
