I have limited mobility—can I still volunteer?

Whether due to a lack of transportation, time constraints, a disability or other reasons, many people prefer to volunteer via phone or computer. There may be projects where you can help. Writing and graphic design lends itself to working at home, and in today’s digital age GAC may need help with email, our website and our social media.

Volunteering as a family

While it might be a challenge to coordinate everyone’s schedules, volunteering as a family has many worthwhile benefits. Children watch everything you do. By giving back to the community, you show them first-hand how volunteering makes a difference and how good it feels to help others and enact change. It’s also a valuable way for you to get to know organisations in the community and find resources and activities for your children and family.
