Jan McGlinn has been a committed volunteer for 48 years, with more than 28 years in the Peel District since moving to Mandurah in 1990. The achievements and accolades afforded in her employed role as Co-ordinator/Manager of the Mandurah City Senior Citizens Centre clearly indicate her level of commitment and service above and beyond the ‘job specification’ and her passion particularly for the senior citizens of her community. The fact that her local Member of Parliament was moved to make a statement in Parliament acknowledging her commitment is an honour rarely afforded any person. When the Peel Branch of the Seniors Recreation Council Inc was established in 2002 Jan was involved as a volunteer from the start, initially as Secretary then as Branch President from 2006 till now and has been a driving force in the wide range of activities conducted by that Branch. In addition, she is the Branch Presidents Representative on the Seniors Recreation Council Board of Management.
The ethos of Seniors Recreation Council of WA Inc is ‘Healthy Ageing Through Activity’ and the range of programs conducted by SRCWA and branches around the State are designed to enhance the physical, mental and social well-being of our senior citizens. Jan manages a wide range of programs through the SRCWA Peel Branch and is a regular volunteer in the conduct of the various programs some of which are run on a weekly basis in the Peel Region. The increasing proportion of our population in the over 50’s age group, particularly in the Peel Region, places increasing pressure on health and other services – which makes the provision of preventative programs such as those provided by the Peel Branch of SRCWA under the volunteer management of Jan a significant benefit to the community.

Congratulations SRCWA Peel Branch President “Jan Mc Glinn OAM” on all your achievements and years of dedicated service.
