Volunteers are the backbone of our organisation and without them much of the work we do would not be possible. Each year compassionate community members volunteer their time, skills and energy to help us to aid the people of Maitland.

MCCS is always looking for suitable volunteers aged over 18, to support us in a range of ways.
