CARAD is a fabulous organisation in Western Australia that has assisted more than 5000 refugees and asylum seekers with services such as settlement support, advocacy, referral, emergency and financial aid, English lessons and homework support. For those of you who are keen to get involved and support some of our most vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees, volunteering with organisations such as CARAD is a great option.
CARAD runs an Application Assistance Workshop (AAW) program that helps people with reading and writing assistance as clients collect the information and documents needed for their application under the temporary protection visa “Fast track” system.
Volunteers are needed for workshops on Saturday mornings during December 2015 and February 2016. If you are already a trained volunteer and current member of CARAD, who has excellent comprehension skills and is comfortable working one-on-one with clients, please contact CARAD at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in helping with this program, but not yet trained, CARAD are conducting a AAW training day on Saturday 7th February 2016. You will need to be available on either Wednesday or Thursday evenings or Saturday afternoons from February 2016 for at least a six month commitment. You can register your interest by sending an email to email@example.com
