It's National Volunteer Week this week and we wanted to say a massive THANK YOU all our generous volunteers who give up their time to help our communities. LiveBetter has around 240 volunteers who help our aged and disability customers in a variety of ways, from community transport to social activities and support. If you are interested in volunteering you can call our customer service hub on 1800 580 580.
We had a chat with Jim, who has been volunteer driving in Orange, NSW for 3.5 years. Jim averages around 350-400kms a week, sometimes driving as far Sydney and back in a day. His enjoyment and passion for helping others is truly contagious.
"I enjoy the aspect of volunteering because I get to help people and meet people. It's very rewarding."
"Every week there are regulars, I've become very friendly with now. I enjoy talking with them about their family and their problems."
Watch Jim's story below.
