The Boroondara Volunteer Resource Centre is advertising this role on behalf of Solve Disability Solutions.
Volunteers meet with our Occupational Therapist and client to identify a solution to their problem (when they can’t find anything commercial). Sometimes you may need to upholster an item another volunteer has made, other times you may make a custom cushion, padded seat etc.
You will gain a lot of satisfaction from completing an upholstery project, not only have you had the opportunity to use your skills and knowledge, but also seeing the smile on a client’s face when they can now do something they previously couldn’t is very rewarding. All material and travel costs are reimbursed to volunteers.
Requirements: This role is suited to someone retired, semi-retired or working full or part time who as the skills and enjoys helping others in the community. As long as you are available during business hours to meet with the client, the project can then be made in your own time.
