Why does RFBI need volunteers?

At RFBI we are proud to continue our tradition of providing care and assistance to those in need. Volunteering in an aged care village is your opportunity to both give and gain. In as much as you will be giving your time to the community that cares for you, you will also be able to spend time with some truly extraordinary Australians —-and learn a little more about life in Australia from those who came from a previous generation.

Volunteers are integral members of the RFBI team, generously providing regular companionship, new skills, conversation and friendship to our residents. In return, our volunteers gain a sense of satisfaction, a few laughs and some interesting anecdotes!

Our volunteer program welcomes volunteers into our residential villages, encouraging them to share their passions, interests and skills with our residents and to become part of our Village family. There is plenty of flexibility, too. As well as ongoing opportunities, you can volunteer seasonally, intermittently, or for one-off occasions.
