We are looking for volunteer chefs and
kitchen hands to get involved in this new
venture. We’ve got some produce from our
garden that we would like to turn into a
lunch on a Tuesday. Lots of people ask us
how Asian greens, kale, eggplant and
herbs can be cooked. We are hoping to
have lots of people involved in preparing
and then sharing lunch using some of
these ingredients. If this is something that
interests you and you have 2 or 3 hours to
spare on a Tuesday then phone the centre
on 5491 4000.
Family support makes a difference!
We understand that sometimes families struggle with problems like financial pressures, difficulties coping
with children, feeling isolated, lonely & stressed.
Sometimes parents just need someone to talk to.
Our Family Support Volunteers visit families in their homes & offer support in a variety of ways depending
on the issues the family is experiencing.
The support we offer is free and has been beneficial to many families in the area.
If you think that you or your family, may benefit from this type of support, give the Centre a call on
5491 4000 and have a chat to Kim.

Family Support Program – Volunteering
The Caloundra & Hinterland Family Support Program is currently recruiting people to train as volunteers to
support families in the community who are experiencing difficulties.
We are seeking people who have some time to spare and a caring, non-critical nature. This volunteer
opportunity is open to both men and women of all ages.
Family support volunteers provide emotional and practical support at times of stress and pressure, visiting
families and providing supportive telephone contact.
Volunteers gain from their experience in many ways including personal satisfaction, learning new skills and
increased understanding of themselves.
Existing volunteers frequently comment that they believe the support they offer to families is very
worthwhile and that it really makes a difference to people’s lives.
If you are interested & would like to know more call Kim (in Caloundra) on 5491 4000 or Wendy (in the
Hinterland) on 0423716705.
