Volunteering opportunities at the Office of the Public Advocate in the Grampians region.
HELP PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF PEOPLE WITH A DISABILITY
Do you want to make a difference to the lives of people in your local community?
The Office of the Public Advocate is looking for people to volunteer as Community Visitors and Independent Third Persons.
Community Visitors are the eyes and ears of the community. They safeguard and uphold the human rights of people with disabilities by visiting accommodation facilities and monitoring and reporting on the adequacy of the services being provided.
Independent Third Persons attend police interviews for adults and young people with disability to ensure that they are not disadvantaged during the interview process.
Training and reimbursement of expenses are provided.
To learn more about these highly rewarding volunteer roles please contact the OPA Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0418 931 247.
