National Volunteer Week
Why volunteer?
Ask CFS, SES, Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, Zonta, View Club and many other service and volunteer organisations why their members volunteer to improve life in their communities, nationally and across the world.
Some of the answers may surprise you...
Volunteering helps you stay physically healthy. Studies have found that those who volunteer have a lower mortality rate than those who do not.
Volunteering encourages civic responsibility.
Volunteering provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.
Volunteering can advance your career. Looks great on your CV.
Volunteering is a great way to extend your social network and connect with other people who share a common goal.
Meet new people and develop lasting relationships. · Increase your happiness and better your mental health.
Give back to the community. “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” rings especially true for students volunteering.
Learn How to lead others. Leadership, both as a research area and as a practical skill, encompasses the ability of an individual, group, or organization to "lead", influence, or guide other individuals, teams, or entire organizations.
Volunteering gives you a chance to talk to new people and sharpen your social skills.
Students volunteering gain valuable experience that they can add to their CV or LinkedIn.
When it comes to volunteering being important for mental health, the benefits are clear. It can help counteract the effects of stress.
Have fun! Volunteers are happier, healthier and sleep better than those who don't volunteer. Just a few hours of volunteer work can make a difference.
Partnering with our local SES
A most informative visit with Fiona and Di from SA State Emergency Service Noarlunga. Both Fiona & Di have been in SES just shy of 10 years. Fiona is the Assistant Unit Manager at Noarlunga. Both are in SOSU, State Operation Support Unit.  Noarlunga has 70 members. The SES help other emergency services such as Police in search and rescue. SES helps with road closures after trees down and accidents. They have also help with large animal rescue. In times of floods, SES supply sandbags to help protect properties. They also help CFS in bushfires. Noarlunga is the biggest area in the city area and is the busiest. 
How to prepare in case of evacuation...
Listen to the ABC Radio News, BOM and SES Website for updates.
If have to leave home, have an emergency pack ready and even if you don't, make sure you have spare batteries for torches and radio and emergence lighting in case power goes out. What goes in the pack is up to you but examples, water bottle, snacks, book, torch, small radio & batteries for them, medication, medication scripts, important papers, a book to read, change of undies & if you have pets, food etc for them.
Thank you SES volunteers for the work you do to help us stay safe.
Partnering with Bunnings Noarlunga
Helping at the Bunnings Mothers' Day Family Night. Painted pots to be planted with white or purple violets. Fun for members and profitable for the club. Thanks for the opportunity Bunnings.
