Welcome to
Volunteer Task Force

Volunteer Task Force (VTF) has been serving the Perth community since 1970. Our clients are frail aged people and younger people with a disability, and their carers.

Our aim is to help people with limited means – financial, social and physical – to live with safety, amenity and comfort in surroundings of their choosing. Our services support independence. Our focus is ‘with a client’, not ‘for a client’ or ‘to a client’.

Volunteer Task Force is the proud winner of ACSWA Excellence in Care Awards, Organisation of the Year Award 2013.

R U OK?Day is Australia’s national day of action aimed at reminding all of us to reach out and ask ‘are you okay?’ of someone who might be struggling with life.  

Volunteer Task Force is pleased to be supporting R U OK?Day by encouraging all of us to look out for one another and ask “are you ok?” in the workplace. We can all do our bit to create a culture and environment where people feel confident asking and answering this most important question. These conversations can make a real difference to any of our workmates who may be going through a tough time.

If your gut says something’s not quite right with someone, chances are that they might need a bit of extra support from the people around them. They might be acting a bit differently, seem to have a lot on their plate, or simply aren’t themselves. Don’t ignore those signs but instead take some time to start a conversation.

R U OK?Day takes place on 11 September, 2014. For more information including tips on how to have a tough conversation, visit www.ruok.org.au
