Citizen Advocacy is a not-for-profit organisation funded by the Australian Government. We seek out people with intellectual disability who are isolated from their community and have little family support or social activity.
Our aim is to empower this group of vulnerable people by matching them with a caring member of the community who becomes their friend and advocate. If you have a few hours to spare and want to make a difference to someone's life, we'd love to hear from you! We have opportunities throughout the Perth area.
We value our volunteer advocates and hold events throughout the year where you can socialise with the person you support and other matches. We also offer workshops and events for volunteer advocates on topics relevant to your role.
