- Community volunteering
Many begin volunteering to make a difference to others, but begin to notice a difference in themselves.
That’s certainly been the case for dedicated volunteers like Kerri who have been helping out in the Guide Dogs Queensland office.
“I like to lend a hand where I can and Guide Dogs is a wonderful place to volunteer. I’ve learnt so many new skills and it’s a really supportive environment” she said.
There are so many ways you can make a difference to Guide Dogs Queensland
With most having such a busy lifestyle, it can be difficult to find time to volunteer.
Kerri has been giving a bit of her time whenever she finds a chance and after meeting new people and learning a range of diverse skills, she’s been reaping the benefits of giving back.
Volunteering can give you self-confidence, a sense of purpose and even make you happier
And better yet, you’re making a difference to fellow Queenslanders of every age who are living with low or no vision. That’s the greatest benefit of all!
