Becoming A Volunteer

Volunteers are essential to the heart and soul of Community Care Durham (CCD). Without your generosity and commitment, CCD would Thumbs upnot be able to provide our clients with the broad range of services and supports that enable them to live at home.

Throughout Durham Region, our volunteers are neighbours helping neighbours, dedicated people sharing their knowledge, time and skills to enrich the lives of others. In the process, our volunteers also receive training opportunities, the chance to learn new skills and opportunities to use them.

When you volunteer, you experience the personal satisfaction that comes from helping someone in need. Your generosity makes the difference between someone living without support, versus a person living confidently and well, safe in the knowledge that they are not alone.

Please consider joining the CCD team of volunteers as we continue in our mission of “Supporting People, Strengthening Community.” Whether it is a few hours a week or a few hours a month, you can make a difference in someone’s health and quality of life.  Tell us what your availability is and we will work with you to develop a schedule that works for you!
