Join us, become a volunteer!
Volunteering is at the heart of TOMNET. By working together, our team of volunteers make a positive difference to the wellbeing of isolated and lonely older men in the community.
Becoming a Volunteer opens up a world of opportunity to learn new skills, develop self-confidence and meet new friends.
The services you provide as a Volunteer are beneficial, not only to yourself, but also to the organisation and, most importantly, to the people gaining direct benefit from your skills, enthusiasm, time, effort and companionship.
We understand that members must COMMIT to a shared focus, and that SHARED EXPERIENCES need time and sustained interaction to develop secure relationships.
In short, we aim to develop sustainable groups that are peer supported and member led.
How Can I Help?
Volunteers for TOMNET determine their level of involvement and the types of activities they wish to be involved in. We can help you find a position that best fulfills your interests and skills.
TOMNET Volunteers support and enhance the lives of disadvantaged youth through sharing skills and life experiences by Mentoring at the Toowoomba Flexischool.

TOMNET is a registered member of Volunteering Australia. TOMNET supports and encourages older men to be involved with their community by helping other older men deal with retirement, depression, isolation and grief.
