Queanbeyan volunteers finish training

Ten brand new volunteers from across the Queanbeyan region have just finished their final training.

It was only a matter of a few weeks ago that we put out the call for volunteers to apply for the new Queanbeyan Region Palliative Care Volunteer Service.  Men and women, as well as applicants from diverse backgrounds were all encouraged to apply.

The responsive was so positive, and swift, that we have been able to complete our first training program in record time and our volunteers are ready to go!  The new service will be active very soon.

“Volunteers provide one-on-one meaningful social support to clients, their family, and carers. It‘s about maintaining the best quality of life until death” said Fiona Sivyer, Project Officer of the Consumer and Carer Relief at End of Life (CCREOL) Project, a collaboration between Palliative Care NSW, Southern NSW Local Health District and COORDINARE.

We are still welcoming applicants so if you would like to know more, please contact [email protected]
