Volunteers are an essential part of the Wing Kei team. Through a variety of activities such as helping with recreational activities and providing companionship, they help improve the quality of life of our residents.
At Wing Kei, we pride ourselves on creating a meaningful and joyful work environment for every member of our team, including volunteers.

We also commit to providing you with appropriate training to ensure you feel comfortable and confident.
