Welfare


Jenny O'Neill 0422 091900

The Welfare Officer's role is integral to the club as it keeps the membership information and up to date in regard to the health and welfare of the members.  This is done by way of sending cards and making phone calls, either direct to a Member of their family and letting our members know that our club is more than just a club and more of a family network.

In some cases we visit members in hospital or at home and make sure they are being cared for and also assist with transport and shopping if needed.
