Make a Difference. Volunteer.

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.

ECH believes each person is unique, worthy of respect, dignity and inclusion and that, every individual needs to be active, engaged and have confidence in themselves and their environment.

As a volunteer you will have an important role to play in helping to promote self-determination and enabling ECH clients to have the best life possible as they age so they can stay who they are, where they are.

Volunteer opportunities

Some of the volunteering activities include involvement in one or more programs and different areas such as art, craft, music, individual visits, social groups, gardening, bus driving, cooking and outings.
