Awareness Campaign

Posted by | Featured Story, News | 0 |

Interchange Incorporated received funding through the NDIA’s ILC National Readiness Grants to raise awareness that volunteering offers people with disability and the broader community the opportunity to contribute to inclusive communities and to increase the number of community members, including those with disability, who contribute to volunteering in the sector.

The project has been developed on behalf of the Interchange member agencies operating across Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales.

On International Volunteer Day (5th December 2017) Interchange Incorporated is launching an awareness campaign to raise awareness of the barriers faced by people with a disability and the variety of enriching opportunities for volunteers to support community inclusion.

The campaign will run for 3 months and will share the stories of Interchange participants and volunteers. Keep an eye on your local agency’s Facebook page to read and share stories of some of the wonderful people involved with Interchange!
