South East Volunteers was established in 1985, originally named the Waverley Volunteer Outreach, and later named the Monash Volunteer Resource Centre. Its purpose was to coordinate the recruitment and training of volunteers for community organisations in the City of Waverley, but soon grew to include all of the City of Monash, and to provide other community services, including social support, transport, and a safety register, as well as running a police check service for community organisations.
Our Mission: We partner with the community in pursuit, provision and growth of volunteering opportunities and social support. We provide a sense of social interaction and safety for vulnerable members of the community. Our services belong to local residents and enhance lifestyles.
South East Volunteers is managed by a CEO and Board of Management and is supported by a small number of paid staff and dedicated volunteers. Our CEO is Ann Burgess, who has many years of experience in managing community organisations, and our board consists of highly respected people from the surrounding areas with experience and a wide range of skills, from financial and legal to business and community service.
