Nexus Primary Health calling for volunteers

Nexus Primary Health is on the hunt for new volunteers to join the team.

Chief executive Amanda Mullins said after a tough few years through the pandemic, the organisation was looking to expand its services.

“Our volunteers are a fabulous team of committed community members who love being involved with Nexus in the community,” she said.

With a long history of providing health and wellbeing services in the Mitchell, Murrundindi and Strathbogie shires, Nexus has almost 400 staff and about 145 volunteers.

It is hoping the extra recruits can help expand the Meals on Wheels service, which still managed to deliver 25,000 meals in the past 12 months.

“We could not have done that without our volunteer team,” Ms Mullins said.

The organisation also hopes to branch out into social support and transport services in the Mitchell and Murrindindi shires.

Nexus volunteer co-ordinator Kevin Twan said volunteers provided companionship for those isolated in the community and helped them out with things like transport to medical appointments.

“Unfortunately, connection with community is really lacking for some individuals right now,” he said.

“Nexus wants to help and support the community, especially those who are isolated, to stay connected.”

Nexus provides all volunteers with training and support.
