Volunteers are critical to the operations of most not-for-profit organisations, and the Stroke Recovery Association is no exception.

Our greatest need for volunteers is in our Stroke Recovery Clubs. We have about 50 of these groups around NSW, providing critical support to those affected by Stroke – not just the person who has had the Stroke, but also their carer, family and friends.

Stroke Recovery Clubs are a meeting place for people to share their knowledge and experience of Stroke. They provide an opportunity for group activities, speech practice, exercises and outings. Clubs are an excellent source of companionship for all those affected by Stroke including family and carers.

Details of voluntary assistance that we need:

Stroke Recovery Club Coordinators. We need volunteers who are interested in being involved in our Stroke Recovery Clubs. This can be assisting with the organisation of activities, providing administrative support, or just coming along to be part of the friendship. Click to read a job description.

Stroke Recovery Association Office Assistant. The Stroke Recovery Association occasionally needs volunteers to assist with administration tasks in relation to various events throughout the year, especially during Stroke Awareness Week in September. We run conferences, games days and weekend excursions for our members, and having a few extra hands pulling it all together would be of great assistance to us. If you are interested in assisting us with printing, collating, filing and other office duties, first read the job description

Board of Directors. The Stroke Recovery Association also welcomes executives interested in joining our Board of Directors – read details about the position.

Become a Mentor. A Peer Support Mentor is a person who has had a Stroke or a Carer of a Stroke Survivor who is willing and able to assist another Stroke Survivor/Carer in the recovery process. The mentoring program aims to link together new Stroke Survivors/Carers to provide them with the opportunity to communicate with someone else in a similar situation but who is further along in their recovery. The program will match people living with Stroke (either Stroke Survivors or Carers of Stroke Survivors) with a trained peer support worker who is also a Stroke Survivor or Carer. Initial contact will be by telephone or email. Peer Support Mentors do not perform the role of trained counsellors. Their role is primarily to listen, share their experience of Stroke and offer support to other Stroke Survivors/Carers. They are volunteers who are trained and supported by the Stroke Recovery Association to undertake this role. If you are interested in becoming involved in this new project, please contact us on 1300 650 594 or email info@strokensw.org.au

We would also welcome volunteers with skills in the areas of marketing and fundraising.
