About the agency Templestowe Orchards is a resident funded village situated in Anderson's Creek Road in Doncaster East. All residents have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of activities either in-house or in the local community and there are always trips and excursion options.
It has a comprehensive Lifestyle and Leisure program which is developed in consultation with the residents and reviewed on an ongoing basis. This program provides a variety of experiences and opportunities for residents to continue their preferred interests and hobbies and facilities social interactions. Residents are free to choose from the myriad of experiences offered and it is within this area that volunteers play a significant role.
Volunteers From the provision of one to one social contact with a specific resident to being part of the support team on a planed outing or excursion, volunteers are essential to the Lifestyle and Leisure program. The promotion of self esteem, individuality, freedom of choice and the maintenance of privacy and confidentiality for all residents is paramount.
