Baptist Care SA Volunteering on hold during COVID-19 Emergency.

Baptist Care SA has suspended its face to face and site based volunteer recruitment during the COVID 19 emergency.  This decision reflects the fact that our insurance does not cover these volunteers in a pandemic environment.  We are immensely grateful for the transformational contribution made by our volunteers and we look forward to working with them again as soon as possible.

“What I’ve learnt from being a mentor in the Baptist Care SA Friendship Program, is that mentors gain just as much as the refugees in the program. I’d really encourage others to be involved because it’s very rewarding and it’s a good way to contribute to making somebody feel welcome and comfortable in Australia.”

Kyra, mentor
