SECASA volunteers support counsellors and administrative workers. In 2018 we had Molly, who was based at the Dandenong office, Darlene at Seaford, Shannen at East Bentleigh and Ilo who volunteered at various SECASA locations.
SECASA’s volunteers assist in several key tasks. There is always photocopying of materials and incorporating this with printed material into information packages for community development talks. There are collating materials and helping counsellors with talks at schools and information sessions. They also play a key role in running activities and events.
Volunteer coordinator, Sheryl would like to extend her thanks to the volunteers, who are “a vital part of SECASA achieving our goals in the community”.
Volunteers have engaged in a beautification project at the East Bentleigh premises, upgrading the gardens and creating colourful ceramic additions.

Thank you so much Sarah Ritter from Backpacks for Victorian Kids. Sarah came to the SECASA Team Meeting yesterday to tell us about the work they do and to donate backpacks to SECASA clients. Backpacks for Victorian Kids have donated over 3,000 backpacks to organisations this year. Wonderful work!
These terrific mosaic pots and sphere will be included in the upgrade to the SEAFORD garden. The clay pots are early works from our East Bentleigh Group ... other works created over the years by people exploring their creativity. Made in groups, and at home. Anne Riggs – art group
