Corporate Volunteering partnerships are available
iCare offers Corporate volunteering programs that are mutually-beneficial partnerships between companies and the local community. For the companies, our programs give their employees new experiences and maturity beyond the normal work environment. When the employees return to work, they will have gained a broader perspective on the world and a deeper appreciation for society.
Disability workers volunteers
We offer a number of interesting volunteer opportunities to support the frail aged and younger people with disabilities; including accompanying them to social or medical appointments, taking them shopping or to social outings, calling or visiting them.
It doesn’t matter how much or how little time you have to give; there will be something for you. If you would like to dedicate anywhere from 20 minutes a week to three hours a fortnight, please contact us: +61 0400 998 755 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We collaborate and network with other charities and corporate entities to achieve common goals.
Collaborating with our organisation can mutually coordinate your work, thereby reducing duplication and disorganisation and increasing your programs’ productivity and efficacy. We want to establish links with other charities for mutual benefit of exchanging information, coordinating our respective programs, and perhaps even partnerships. If you would like to work with us please contact us.
