Volunteering That’s Changing Lives

“Volunteering through Community Mates for the Disabled Surfers Association (D.S.A.) at Maroochydore Beach recently with my teenage son was amazing! We had no previous experience, but it was easy and the team leaders were fantastic, showing us what to do. Volunteering was the perfect re-bonding for a grumpy teenager and an “over it” Mum. This time was one of the best investments we’ve made in our relationship. The experience reminded me of my son’s good nature, it reminded him of all the good in his life and how he can help others and it was a wonderful shared experience. The best part of all was the joy of being together with beautiful people - participants, volunteers and carers. I can’t recommend volunteering with the Community Mates team highly enough!” (Emily - November 2016)
