    Ever thought of becoming a volunteer advocate?

    Are you community minded with a strong sense of social justice? Would you like to make a difference in the life of a person with an intellectual disability? We are looking for volunteers in your area to come forward and support people in your local community. The role of a volunteer advocate typically takes 2-3 hours of your time, either weekly or fortnightly but those few hours can have a significant impact on someone who may be feeling isolated, lonely, and vulnerable.

    Crisis Advocate for Citizen Advocacy

    Citizen Advocacy is seeking crisis advocates to assist with short-term advocacy roles addressing unforeseen or urgent issues in the life of a person with intellectual disability. A crisis advocate has many of the same qualities as a citizen advocate and goes through the same orientation, but instead of committing to a long-term relationship, the crisis advocate is on hand to respond to unforeseen or urgent issues. The relationship will only be expected to last as long as the crisis continues.
