MDHSS has over 30 volunteers assisting the organisation in many of its programs and services. MDHSS is well supported by many people in the community who offer their skills and friendship to assist staff and clients in a diverse range of centre based activities and out in the community.
MDHSS is committed to increasing the level of community participation by providing opportunities for volunteering within the organisation. Volunteers assist MDHSS to achieve its goals and in return, volunteers gain new skills and form different friendships.
