The Board and Management of Seawinds Community Hub are forever grateful to the many volunteers who support our centre. Seawinds volunteers are the lifeblood for many of the activities on offer at the Hub. These highly valued members of our team and their contribution and support is essential to the smooth running of the centre.

Volunteering offers an opportunity to meet like minded people who share interests and who have some spare time on their hands. There are lots of different volunteer roles available – from an hour or so a week, to as much as you want to do across a variety of programs, you might.

Some roles include:

  • general admin duties
  • doing odd jobs around the Hub building
  • preparing community lunch for more than 50 vulnerable community members each week during school terms
  • maintaining the gardens around the Hub
  • helping to run group activities
  • supporting our courses and programs
  • collecting food from local supermarkets 5 days a week for Second Bite
  • helping organise fundraising activities
  • reading to children in the ELC
  • supporting events
  • joining the Board. Do you have expertise from which we can benefit?

Seawinds relies heavily on the work of our volunteers and we’re pleased to say the level of satisfaction among our volunteers is incredibly high.  They’re a great bunch of people and they are highly valued.

Here’s what some of our volunteers say about Seawinds: 

“Volunteering is a way for me to participate whilst learning from others in the community.

I have been volunteering at the Hub for 6 years and continue to be humbled by the people I am fortunate to have met, volunteered with and those who have become dear friends.”


“Volunteering is the career you take on in retirement with lots of benefits to the community and yourself. We have been lucky to be involved with Seawinds Community Hub since the beginning when Steve ‘Wilko” gave us a tour prior to opening. Our skills from our paid careers have been used to give back to our local community, handyman work, gardening, cleaning, working in the cafe, and the community lunch. As locals we get more back “payment in kind”, making new friends, seeing the smiles of people visiting the hub and improvement in facilities. We always leave Seawinds feeling good that we have done something positive for the locals. It is a rewarding experience to volunteer.”


Meet one of our lovely volunteers


One of our volunteers Naomi a dedicated enthusiastic volunteer amongst her hidden talents started the first DIY Women’s Workshops this year in the Men’s Shed.  Naomi was a specialist secondary school teacher for over 30years. She taught everything from textiles and wood to art, ceramics and basic electronics.

Naomi joined the Hub in 2018 where she has previously been involved with the Early Learning Centre, Dementia Café and Boomerang Bags and as an avid green thumb Naomi maintains the garden in the café courtyard and kitchen garden. Naomi volunteers because she wants to give back to the community, meet likeminded people, to keep active and connected. She likes Seawinds Community Hub because it is just that – a hub and hive of activity! It houses a lot of programs and essential services. There are classes, community groups, the Men’s Shed, Early Learning Centre, playgroups and much, much more. There is something for everyone.

Naomi has done a lot of travelling both in Australia and overseas, but she admits she loves Oz the best and living in McCrae on the Mornington Peninsula is special. I can enjoy all my passions, gardening, DIY and the beach and it’s not far from my three adult daughters in Melbourne.

Put your hands together.  Thank you to Naomi for your amazing contribution
