Why Volunteer?

Volunteering allows you to connect to your community - even helping with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people in need.

We aim to make your volunteering experience fun and rewarding.  You don’t need any formal qualifications; we will make every effort to match you to the right role and help you achieve your aspirations as a volunteer.

As a Suncare volunteer you will work with compassionate, like-minded people who share your drive to help carers and their care recipients to feel empowered in their homes and neighbourhoods.

Whether you are just starting out in the workforce or transitioning to retirement, volunteering is a wonderful way to meet people, learn new skills and be appreciated for the unique gifts you bring to a caring role.

Choose from a range of Suncare services:

  • Suncare Community Transport - assist Suncare clients with appointments and errands.
  • Social support - offer a helping hand with shopping, appointments and social opportunities for Suncare clients.
  • Maroochydore Day Respite Centre - social activities where Suncare clients enjoy art, bingo, bowls and more.
  • Nandjimadji Art Group - assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander carers and their care recipients to express their creativity in a nurturing and respectful environment.
  • Meals on Wheels - assist with meal deliveries and offer diners some warm words from a friendly face.

Meals on Wheels 

Why this not-for-profit service is more than just a meal.

Meals on Wheels volunteers assist with deliveries to ensure that the client is receiving a healthy, nutritious meal in the comfort of their own home. 

Whilst the warm words and meal delivery are important, this service provides much more to our clients, the visit can sometimes be their only daily interaction.
The social contact and friendly words from one of our volunteers can brighten their day and gives the deliverer a chance to check the client’s general well-being and safety.
Just knowing that someone will be round every day to say hello and bring a healthy meal, is an invaluable service to our clients.
