NBDC is a small Day Respite Centre made up of Seniors from a diverse range of ethnic backgrounds and we are a happy and cohesive social group. Our Volunteers help the Clients with craft activities, active games, board games and music activities. They also help with serving morning tea and assist the Clients at lunch time.

From time to time we take the Clients out for short trips to local places of interest and our Volunteers assist clients on and off bus or in and out of cars. With the aim of keeping otherwise isolated elders connected to their community and providing social interaction we assist in their overall health and wellness.

Volunteering at NBDC you will find yourself building relationships with staff and clients and becoming part of the 'family' that is North Belconnen Day Centre. We operate Tues to Thursday 10am - 2pm and are located in the Uniting Church Building in Melba.
