Welcome to the final VSC newsletter of 2019. Where has this year gone? It seems like each year passes faster and faster. I'm incredibly proud of all the work done by the volunteers of the Volunteering Sunshine Coast office as well as the thousands of volunteers around the Coast who give of themselves so selflessly.
On behalf of VSC, I'd like to wish you all a joyful and safe festive season and a happy new year.
I am also pleased to announce that VSC has formed a partnership with Privium Homes. We thank them for their support are very excited to work together.
Also, read about our latest Member of the Month who are taking the lead in wheelchair basketball with fun and inclusivity.
Until next year,

We are delighted to announce our partnership with Privium Homes. We are very excited to be working together and are grateful for their support. The following is a message from Privium Homes:
Privium Homes are devoted to building homes that benefit the lives of the people living in them, and the community they exist in. Now, we are very pleased to announce a partnership with Volunteering Sunshine Coast – changing lives for the better!
With a wide range of product offerings to cater from first home buyers to forever home buyers on the eastern seaboard of Australia. Our range of homes include stylish single storey, acreage, double storey and unique split level home designs.
Privium Homes have secured “winning status” for Sunshine Coast Master Builder Housing and Construction category "Best Display Home $451,000 – $550,000 - Privium Homes Pty Ltd". This award-winning display home, the “Shore 23”, incorporates four generous bedrooms and two living spaces in an ingenious, single-storey design. Boasting the Arizona façade, this home offers a large alfresco area with featured timber wooden decking, with natural light bursting through the open plan kitchen, meals and living area. The bedrooms are thoughtfully separated from the common areas, and you’ll love the additional living room, which allows the family to enjoy a space of their own.
“Privium Homes are extremely proud to take out the overall best display home category for the Sunshine Coast. It has been a fantastic team effort to deliver this stunning showpiece for new home buyers to visit,” said Mr. Aaron Jambrovic – National Sales Manager at Privium Homes.
