Gorman House Detoxification Unit –
volunteer profile by Sarah L’Huillier

Since 2005, through a partnership with St Vincent’s Hospital, the NSW branch of the Order of Malta, has been supporting Gorman House in Sydney. If it were not for the NSW Branch financial assistance Gorman House would have closed instead of continuing to function 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The branch also organises volunteers for the BBQs that are held three times a week to socialise with residents.
