Community Support Volunteer
Volunteer opportunities within AnglicareSA’s Mental Health and Disability services.
We are currently seeking volunteers to work closely with AnglicareSA’s NDIS Customer Advocate team to provide support for those in the process of applying for the NDIS and enhance and expand the social experiences of customers awaiting the commencement of formal supports. The role will be located throughout sites across the metropolitan area and may include visiting customers to provide support in helping them remain connected during the NDIS application process.
AnglicareSA is a provider of support to those in our community who are in both the process of applying for and accessing services through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The NDIS is the new scheme that has been described as the biggest social reform since the introduction of Medicare, with approximately 32,000 South Australians eligible to access the scheme by 2020. The NDIS funds individuals with a diagnosed disability to access tailored funding in which they have choice in the services and providers that will best meet their needs. The NDIS core principles involve choice and control; however the NDIS can be tough to negotiate with therefore resulting in lengthy delays for approval and support, especially for the most vulnerable in our community.
To help customers navigate the scheme, AnglicareSA are investing in NDIS Customer Advocates to provide support to those wishing to access the NDIS. Support ranges from assisting people to access the NDIS, through to supporting customers with the planning process such as establishing goals and areas in their life in which they want to improve.
