People helping people

Volunteer members play a vital role in our community and their service makes a real difference. There is NO PAYMENT for volunteering work at ICWA and those engaging are doing so for no financial gain. All volunteers are required to undergo a Police Check and may need “Working With Children Check ID”. Volunteers are committing two to four hours per week for minimum of three months, but this also depends on the needs of the service and the availability of the volunteer. Training and supervision are provided for all volunteers.
Reference Letter, certifying volunteer community work will be provided upon request.

If you are interested in supporting your community please submit your interest using the Volunteer registration form below. If you are not a member, then please take the membership first here.
