Communication Rights Australia is faced with a future of ever-increasing need for our services. In the last few years the demand for our services across a much wider geographical community has grown significantly. Your support can help us face this future with confidence.
Human rights infringements are happening every day and your support, no matter how large or small, will provide valuable ongoing assistance for some of the most vulnerable members of our community.
Your support can assist us to provide advocacy services to individuals with little or no speech, to ensure their rights are upheld as valued members of the community, and that they actively participate in decision-making processes, particularly those where the outcomes impact on their lives.
Your support can also help us provide information services to families and to tackle the discriminatory practices within government and the community despite the existence of United Nations Conventions, Victorian Charter of Human Rights, and disability discrimination legislation.
Communication Rights Australia provides opportunities for volunteers, who support our vision and mission, to work at different levels of the organisation.
Volunteering is a great way for you to become actively involved in your community and support the human rights of people within Victoria.
There are a wide range of Volunteer positions throughout Communication Rights so contact us and discuss how you would like to assist. Volunteers provide free services either informally, as individuals or in groups, or formally, by being part of not-for-profit or community organisations or projects.
The following opportunities are available for volunteering at Communication Rights:
Board of Director:
Communication Rights Australia is run by a dedicated Board of Directors who has been identified as having the skills necessary to meet our legal, financial, and community expectations.
Communication Right's members who have little or no speech meet to discuss issues of concern and provide direction and advice to the agency.
