Volunteer with Us!
Volunteers help us make a bigger difference! You are our resources to build community connections for and with our clients with disabilities. This will go a long way towards our vision of promoting whole-of-life community inclusion, bringing together our clients’ strengths and community assets in a meaningful and sustainable way.
The CIRCLES Experience
CIRCLES is our range of long-term community activities to promote community inclusion. A one-session preview version of CIRCLES is CIRCLES Experience. Within a half-day or full-day, you experience our regular client’s training programme, learn about community inclusion and suggest CIRCLES activity ideas in a facilitated workshop at the same session. See ideas from past sessions here.
Regular Volunteering – BUDDIES
BUDDIES refer to our individual volunteers who support us regularly in our client’s training programme, interacting directly with our clients. We match your strengths and interests to a most suitable training activity, such as gardening or fitness. This ensures that the volunteering experience is both meaningful for our clients and for you, the volunteers. Read stories of our existing BUDDIES here.
You can contribute your skills to our work or be an ad-hoc event volunteer through these opportunities. Or sign up using our volunteer application form here to be on our database
