To celebrate National Volunteer Week and as a way of acknowledging the service of our volunteers to people with disabilities, TAD would like to say thanks a million for the time, the generosity and the talent of our 245 volunteers - we couldn't do it without you!

A Volunteer's Story
This is a story of engineers and carpenters, of metalworkers and handymen, of men who give their talent to help other people. In 1975, a group of engineers, led by George Winston, decided to use their skills to profoundly change the lives of people with disabilities.

They built bikes in their workshops, they crafted cots in their sheds, they made chairs in their yards and they still do today. Theirs is a story of craftmanship, of imagination and talent and of doing what you love to help others live better lives.

It is the story of TAD Disability Services. 245 volunteers across NSW, over 37,000 hours per year to enable people with disabilities to lead more independent lives.

Thank you to Barry Lees for featuring in this video who has volunteered at TAD for 34 years.
