Our Social Enterprises Help You Reach Your Goals And Provide An Inclusive And Supportive Environment
Having a strong connection with the local community can lead to a more enriching life. That’s why we established our social enterprises, the Murray River Tea Rooms and Recyclability, where you can be a valued volunteer and participate in activities which help you gain confidence and valuable skills in a supportive environment.
Through our social enterprises, we promote the inclusion of people with disability in the community and provide opportunities resulting in a strong sense of accomplishment. As you develop new skills and gain experience, you will feel more confident and this often opens up future employment opportunities.
Develop New Friendships And Create A Strong Connection With Your Community
Our social enterprises are a great way to make new friends and create stronger bonds through shared experiences. You will volunteer with like minded people and be able to grow together and support each other to achieve your goals.
These enterprises also offer an opportunity to connect with your local community. This can reduce feelings of loneliness or isolation, and help you attain a greater sense of belonging as you meet other people living in your area. Plus, you gain a sense of pride as you provide value to your community together.
We Give You The Support You Need To Enjoy Being Involved And Get The Most Out It
Stepping out of your comfort zone leads to rewarding experiences and personal growth, but it can feel scary and uncomfortable at first. That’s why we provide you with the right support – so you get the most out of volunteering and feel closer to reaching your goals.
Every person is different and requires a specific set of supports and tools to thrive. At Community Living & Respite Services, we design an individual plan with you and help you to identify your goals, interests and personal needs. This helps us to match you with a valued volunteer role you will enjoy.
