Jan Gursanscky - Volunteer

I became a volunteer at Mersey Community Care recently and am, at present, working with transport driving local people to and from appointments. I find that the clients are very appreciative of the service and the journey gives me a chance to chat and learn more about them and their lives. The staff at MCC are very helpful and patient and I believe that I get far more out of this volunteer position than I put in.

Libby Douglas - Client

‘As an MCCA client having access to Staff and Volunteers from the Home Maintenance, Transport and Domestic Assistance Services,

it’s been the most beneficial experience for me because these people have exceptional professionalism and honesty to undertake jobs around my home.

My thanks are to these dedicated workers who have completed jobs for me, being courteous, kind and generous with their time’.

Peter and Ros

Both started volunteering with MCC (Transport area) about 25 years ago when the service operated out of a small building where Providore Place now exists.

At this time there was only one car and a Coaster Bus for transport.

For this service, volunteers used their own vehicles to transport clients if more than one vehicle was required.

Often the only car would be out of Devonport on an extended trip so the only option was to use private cars.

So much has changed.

Since then MCC has grown – extending into other divisions, Home Maintenance being one of the major extensions. Relocation to the present building then the extensions as MCC out grew the space.

All the services offered so much support enabling members of our community to remain in their own location longer.

Over the years I have assist mainly with Bus transport in the early times then as the years progress have scaled down to just being available for car transport.

Whether the need exists for either transport for community members  with disabilities, medical, home visits and the like.

Volunteering while one is able, supports the community.

It makes you realize that you are fortunate to be in a situation that permits the option to assist.

Some volunteers offer assistance on a regular basis but I find that it suits my movements to be available to fill in as needs arise.
