Volunteering Sunshine Coast

Member Testimonials​

It takes a lot of time to process phones  so we need a lot of people running a charity but we don’t have a lot of money.

So how do we find people to test the phones without a lot of money? Well, we found the secret! It is Volunteering Sunshine Coast. We have given them our list of the kind of people we’re looking for, and they put it out to their network.

They do all the pre-qualification and then they present us with a bunch of names of people who can help us. It has been an absolute life changer! We have a whole lot of volunteers in here now who have all been checked out and pre-qualified and they’re now part of our team.
