Volunteering

 

The success of our community house is thanks to the numerous volunteers we have had over the years to support our programs and events. In 2016, Blair Court was lucky to have 45 volunteers contribute 1369hrs to the community house’s programs and services. Our volunteers become an integral part of the organisation and community.  They are respected among staff, clients, and visitors. Blair Court not only appreciates the work of volunteers but strives to provide worthwhile training and job experience to all our volunteers.

Blair Court Community House is always in search of new volunteers to support our programs. If you are interested in volunteering with Blair Court Community House, please check our Current Volunteer Opportunities page above.
