Helping children to reach their full potential.

Celebrating Our Volunteers

Volunteers contribute immeasurable value to the Hear and Say community.

This National Volunteers Week, we celebrate and thank the many incredible people who donate their time and expertise across our centres. Every Hear and Say volunteer has a generous spirit and a heart-warming story – volunteers like Lee.

Lee has been an invaluable volunteer at the Hear and Say Darling Downs Centre for over two years, and she is greatly admired for her outstanding can-do attitude and willingness to attend to any task with enthusiasm and a smile.

“Lee has built such beautiful rapport with our families and we all value her wisdom and warm nature. She is also tireless in her efforts to recruit others from the community to support Hear and Say, and we are so grateful for Lee’s extraordinary continued dedication to helping families impacted by hearing loss,” Anna Warby and Jessica Tattam, Darling Downs Listening and Spoken Language Specialists.

A massive thank you to Lee and all our amazing Hear and Say volunteers!
