London InterCommunity Health Centre

Volunteers

Volunteers are vital to the success of the Health Centre! We can’t provide the services and programs that we do without the help from the community. We value our volunteers and hope that each individual learns and benefits from their experience as much as we do. For that reason, we try very hard to match each person with the right role. Sometimes we have openings right away, other times it takes a bit longer to find just the right role.

We invest time and energy to ensure our individuals have meaningful experiences and make special connections through their time at the Health Centre. We also are dedicated to providing high quality programs and services for our clients. Therefore we ask individuals make the same investment in our volunteer program by offering a minimum 1-year time commitment for each positions.

*Please note, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not accepting any new volunteers at this time.

Volunteer Appreciation

As many of you know, April 19th – 25th is National Volunteer Week. Every year, the Health Centre plans a special recognition ceremony to thank all the volunteers for their hard work and contributions. However due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be hosting our usual volunteer appreciation event. Instead, we are sending each volunteer a special recognition gift by e-mail or mail.

This year, we had 113 volunteers who contributed 15,694 hours of volunteer service! Congratulations to several of our volunteers are celebrating their 5-year milestone anniversaries: Jean Bageire, Olabisi (Aisha) Gbagba, Dana Giboire, Kristy Jansen, Meg Pirie, Robert Rogers, Irene Snake and Rob Van Der Western.

We truly appreciate everything our volunteers have to offer our clients and the community. The Health Centre is not the same without our volunteers. They are missed!
