HBF Corporate Rates for SES Volunteers
The SES Volunteers Association has signed an agreement with HBF Health for corporate rates for SES Registered Volunteers.  This takes effect immediately and is active whilst the SES Volunteer remains a part of an SES Unit.  SES Volunteers in WA can now get up to 12% off HBF Health insurance.  For further details, including discounts on other insurances, please go to the link below or on this website

SES Units that have a number of SES Volunteers interested, can contact Mandy Weir at HBF direct for further details on 0419038328

Northshore SES held its first Family Day during National Volunteer Week on Saturday 13th May 2017 to provide a ‘thank you’ for close family members of the volunteer members, as well as neighbours who live around the unit. About 80 people attended the Family Day, including 20 children. About 10 members donated their time to cook food and arrange the six exhibition stands of equipment and vehicles which the Unit uses during its callouts and training. Many of the stands were developed so that they would be of interest to the young people who attended (see photos below). The Northshore Unit received a small grant from Volunteering WA to put on the event.
