Volunteers assist our ACO staff to support differently-abled clients in a range of activities both centre based and out in the community. ACO centres are located in Parkdale, Cheltenham, Edithvale and Clayton South.
ACO volunteers see the person first and disability second. They possess a sense of fun, humour and adventure! Compassion, patience, understanding, commitment and a great attitude are all required.
Activities are offered from 9am-3pm Monday - Friday. You determine how often or how many hours you would like to volunteer. Full training is provided and volunteers are supported by team leaders and staff. Volunteering with ACO can be immensely rewarding from engaging with our clients to sharing your talents, interests and learning new skills.
