Hayley would like to be matched with someone who will support her through our Specialised Care volunteer program. She has been with this program for many years and is comfortable having a break from her own home environment.
Hayley is 32 years old and keeps herself busy during the week attending programs where she enjoys cooking, swimming and volunteering. She is friendly and sociable with a good sense of humour, has eclectic taste in music ranging from Kings of Leon to AFL theme songs, loves singing and dancing, has a special interest in numbers. In fact, the scope of Hayley’s interests are so wide and varied, it’s impossible not to find an interest in common with Hayley. As a Specialised Care volunteer, you will be supporting Hayley in your own home, providing Hayley with the opportunity to further develop her independent living and social skills whilst also
developing a long-lasting friendship. Ideally the care will involve a monthly stay over from Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon.
