Join the ECH Volunteer team!

Volunteers have provided tremendous support to ECH ever since it was established back in 1964. Thanks to the ongoing commitment from volunteers ECH has been able to offer its clients additional support and benefits such as increased independence and the opportunity of building long-lasting friendships.

The ECH volunteer program prides itself on offering volunteers a diverse variety of roles and activities and is flexible in meeting the needs of its clients and its volunteers, creating opportunities based on the interests of both.
