Eastern Volunteers is a not-for-profit community based organisation, which provides transport services for eligible Home and Community Care recipients, as well as volunteer recruitment to provide pathways for people to participate in the wider community.
This morning Eastern Volunteers held its inaugural business booster breakfast, aimed to strengthen connections between the business and community sectors. The breakfast introduced Eastern Volunteers to businesses within the community and launched Friends of EV, a program which will provide ongoing partnerships between the organisation and businesses. I attended the breakfast and spoke about the work that Eastern Volunteers undertakes within the community, through encouraging new volunteers and providing mobility for people that are often isolated in their homes.
Eastern Volunteers, was formed in 1976 and is a medium sized not-for-profit organisation, with approximately 20 staff members and over 100 volunteers, covering the Cities of Whitehorse, Maroondah and the Shire of Yarra Ranges.
