ways to help

volunteer with us

  • Volunteer with Us

    With limited resources, volunteers play an important role in SPD as our programmes and services require that additional help to operate from time to time.  Here are some broad categories where voluntary work is periodically needed:

    • Administration
    • Client Wellness
    • Education and Training
    • Recreation
    • Rehabilitation

     

    You may wish to register your areas of interest in which you can support us in so that we can contact you when help is needed.
