Our Project Worker Joh Lyons is responsible for The VRI and Digital Shed
TNLH is run by a Committee of Management which oversees the Business and Financial Management of the House. The Committee is made up of volunteers so if you are looking for a chance to take on a leadership and governance role, you may be interested in joining our Committee of Management. The Committee meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month and we are always seeking people from the community with skills in management, finance, law, human resources, education, community development and a willingness to contribute back to the community.
We have the most amazing talented tutors willing to share their knowledge and skills with the community. Many of our tutors started off as students and have tapped into hidden talents and skills to become teachers themselves. So many people have knowledge or skills that need to be shared, so if you feel you have something to offer give us a call to discuss opportunities to be a tutor at our House.
TNLH offers a terrific range of opportunities for volunteers to help out around the House. Benefits to you include training, work experience, building self confidence and new skills, meeting new people, exploring career opportunities, sharing talents, abilities and experiences whilst contributing to our community.
We especially need volunteers to help out with literacy/numeracy to assist people with intellectual disabilities.
If you are interested in finding out about being a volunteer please give us a call on 51 74 6199 to see what opportunities we have for you.
