Are you interested in Volunteering?

Becoming a volunteer is the best way to experience life.

You’ll discover aspects of yourself you never knew existed. You’ll form strong friendships and you’ll never stop learning. The rewards you gain from volunteering are so much greater than dollars, that’s why more than four million Australians volunteer for more than 500 million hours each year. So come and volunteer at PSFaNS.

We value volunteers and it is important to us that you take on roles that you are comfortable with and that you enjoy. Below is a list of options and we are always open to any ideas that you might have. Most options are available at Raymond Terrace, Mallabula, Lemon Tree Passage and Karuah and at times in other areas.
