mecwacare’s Social Support holiday program offers subsidised trips around Victoria for clients and their carers. The trips offer clients of varying ages and abilities an affordable holiday whilst maintaining the level of care they need, with 24-hour support from qualified and experienced staff.
More than 350 volunteers make a valuable contribution to mecwacare, including the Op Shops, transport programs, activity programs and residential facilities. We welcome all enquiries if you are interested in volunteering with us. It can be a very rewarding experience, and also helps mecwacare to continue our essential work in the community.
mecwacare is a major provider of residential, nursing and support services for the frail aged, disadvantaged and people with special needs and disabilities. We operate through a highly-integrated service network of over 1,700 employees and 350 volunteers, caring for over 13,000 people each year across greater Melbourne and regional Victoria.
mecwacare's primary objective is to enhance the quality of life of people in need of care, especially the elderly, through the delivery of innovative, responsive and fully-evaluated services offered in residential settings, community facilities and clients' homes. mecwacare acknowledges the Traditional Custodians and their Elders in each of the Communities in which we work.
