Ahoy! Do you know your port from your starboard? Are you passionate about being on the water?
CPL is looking for a volunteer who is passionate about all things nautical to accompany clients as a social companion, on weekly sailing trips at Graceville! Raise your anchor, it’s time to get moving with your new volunteer role! If this sounds like your dream volunteer role, we would love you to get in touch and talk further about how you can volunteer your skill to add value to client’s lives!
As the sailing social companion, you will be:
- Conducting friendly, professional encounters with clients.
- Encouraging clients to participate in and enjoy weekly sailing trips.
- Share your passion for sailing while encouraging and engaging clients to pursue and develop their hobby/interest in sailing.
You will not be responsible for:
- Any personal support; e.g. personal care or meal assistance. These activities will be carried out by qualified support workers.
This volunteer role will take place every Tuesday from 9.30am to 1pm. The volunteer and CPL will regularly review this volunteer role based on the capacity of the volunteer to assist on an ongoing basis and the needs of CPL.
You will be responsible for organising your transport to and from the location of this CPL role.
Make a difference and support people with a disability to live the life they choose!
