We are a community based program in Darebin, Banyule, Nillumbik & Whittlesea which creates a one-on-one relationship with a volunteer and a person with an intellectual disability.
You don't need any special qualifications or experience as orientation and support is provided on an on going basis. You do need to have a willingness to contribute your time and in return make a huge difference to someone's life.
As an advocate you will represent the interests of a person you are matched with, help them achieve their goals and exercise their human rights.
If you think that you would like to find out more, we would like to hear from you.
