Volunteering enriches your life

 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!

Check out our Volunteer Opportunities to see where your skills and experience can help someone in your community!

Becoming A Volunteer

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, we ask you to complete the “Volunteer Inquiry Form.” Because Community Care Durham Smiling caregiverwants to ensure the ongoing safety and high quality of our services, all applications must also be accompanied by a Police Reference Check, three references and a Driver Abstract (if driving clients).

Every application is thoroughly reviewed and you will be contacted by a staff member for a personal interview as part of the process.

Once this is completed, accepted applicants will receive volunteer orientation and training. Ongoing support is always available to ensure our volunteers are confident and comfortable in their roles of assisting clients.
