Seniors and Retirees

We can provide a great volunteer opportunity for you to share your life skills with the young, unemployed and retired.

Over 55’s

The Stables Christian Centre is an accredited volunteer agency with Centrelink and a member of Volunteering SA. So if you are over 55 and unemployed or on a disability pension, you have an opportunity to do volunteer hours instead of looking for work.  Volunteering SA provides valuable training sessions for volunteers to increase skills and enhance their volunteering experience.  Come and see us first so we can advise you about the positions we have available and tailor them to meet your interests and skills.


Are you needing work experience to get your first job? We have other volunteers who can share experience and help increase your skills to be work ready!


Do you want to get back into the workforce?  The Stables has a great volunteer opportunity just waiting for you.  You will be trained by other volunteers who have trade and life skills and who are happy to pass them on.
