Mid North Coast Regional Business Awards

16 Sep 2021

We thrilled to announce that we have been shortlisted as a finalist in the Mid North Coast Regional Business Awards under the Outstanding Community Organisation category!

This is a huge achievement and testament to all the hard work our staff and volunteers have all been putting in over the past 12 months.

Huge gratitude comes from the MSS Senior Leadership Team to every single one of our staff and volunteers for the dedication they show to the organisation, our clients, and one another. Without the people of MSS none of this would be possible.

We would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our clients and communities. It is an honour to serve the MidCoast and Port Macquarie-Hastings local government areas. We appreciate your ongoing support in all we do and we hope we can continue to provide services that enable you to live with dignity and respect.

Thanks is also bestowed upon Business NSW for recognising our achievements by declaring us finalists.

We wish the best of luck to all the other incredible finalists in this category. Many fabulous local community organisations serving the Mid North Coast area. It is an honour to stand alongside each and every one.

Volunteering is Back!

16 Jun 2020

MSS is an organisation founded on community volunteers. Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do, and we could not be more proud of the exceptional people who contribute their time and ask nothing in return. From admin in the office to assisting with client outings to helping host events, our volunteers make the most enormous positive difference in our services. Every volunteer shares the same passion for our mission: to enhance the quality of people’s lives by providing services which enable them to live with dignity and respect.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, we temporarily closed down our volunteering program here at MSS. We felt this was the best way to keep our clients and volunteers safe. As restrictions are gradually easing, the latest advice confirms that volunteering can start up again and we could not be more excited. We have really missed all our volunteers, as have our clients. Now we can start welcoming back our existing volunteers and opening up our doors for new friendly faces, we just could not be happier.

If you are interested in joining our volunteering program and making a huge difference in your local community, please have a look at the below It’s Time flyer and get in touch today.

Volunteer Week 2020

20 May 2020

This month MSS has proudly been partaking in Volunteer Week from Monday 18 to Sunday 24 May. The theme this year is “Changing Communities. Changing Lives.”

We took part in the Wave for Volunteers initiative to say thank you to our hard working volunteers, and you can see our contribution below.

MSS was built on a strong volunteer workforce and we celebrate the exceptional contribution our volunteers make to our work on an ongoing basis. Volunteer Week is an important event to raise awareness and pay well deserved gratitude to the volunteers around the country. MSS was founded as a volunteer organisation in the late 1970s under the banner of Manning Counselling Service, which has evolved into the far-reaching service we know as MSS today. From day one MSS has relied and depended upon the goodwill and dedication of volunteers and this remains as true today as ever. With around 180 volunteers contributing thousands of hours to our essential services, the contribution of our volunteers is significant. Our mission is to enhance the quality of people’s lives by providing services which enable them to live with dignity and respect. The volunteers of  MSS assist us to deliver on that mission every single day and are an invaluable part of what we do.

Thank you MSS volunteers!
