ConnectAbility recognises, values and acknowledges our community and corporate partners. Without your assistance we would not be able to offer as many quality outcomes for local people living with a disability, older community members or people looking to connect with the local community and its resources.
You may wish to be part of our “Community Buddies” Program. This initiative links customers and trained volunteers based on their mutual interests and shared location to participate in common interests and activities within our disability service.
We also look for volunteers to assist older members of the community to shop, attend appointments or enjoy our friendship groups. This is where people are able to come together either for a meal, entertainment and good company or be out and about in the community together.
Volunteers may also take part in one of the many community activities organised through our Jesmond Neighborhood Centre. Whether it is helping to set up activities, support the community garden or assist at an event.
There are a number of ways organisations can assist whether through including someone with a disability in your community group or workplace, a volunteer role, workplace giving program, supporting fundraising activities or specific projects.
