WHAT WE DO
Saanich Volunteer Services matches people who need help with people eager to provide it.
Driving to appointments, visiting for companionship, delivering food hampers, helping with light yard work, doing minor home repairs and preparing income tax returns are just a few of the ways we contribute to a healthy Saanich.
Our volunteers support adults who need a hand to continue living independently, and our staff provide them with access to a wealth of information about community services and programs that meet client’s unique needs.
A COMMUNITY OF NEIGHBOURS HELPING NEIGHBOURS
Join our team! We look forward to matching your skills and passion to a client who needs your support and kindness.
“I began this adventure to give back, but what I receive is incredible. I always leave my visits with a smile on my face” — Dianne
While our organization runs on volunteers, we are always in need of donations to provide our programs and improve our services, ensuring access for all residents of Saanich.
You will receive a charitable tax receipt for donations over $25.
BECOME A CLIENT
Any adult who is living independently within the Municipality of Saanich may be eligible to register for our services.
Registration starts by a visit from someone on our Client Services Team, who will discuss how we can best support you.
“Retirement meant it was time for me to offer my services to organizations where I could make a difference in other people’s lives.
Little did I realize how good it made me feel to help others live a better life because we CARED.”
“The SVSS shopping bus excursion is the highlight of the week for us. Not only do we get the weekly shopping done, with all the help we need, we also get to know like-minded people.
To meet others is extremely important for every one’s mental well-being. We look forward to our weekly adventure, combining pleasure with the necessities of life.”
- Sven Erik, Client
