Volunteer Service

Volunteering plays a major role in fostering a cohesive and caring Australian society, with an estimated one in three Australians performing various types of volunteering services.

ACCA is fortunate to have been served by countless numbers of volunteers since its inception in 1974. These volunteers contribute their time and effort in serving the members of our community. Their selfless contribution had allowed us to continuously improve and expand the services we provide.

At ACCA, training is conducted regularly for volunteers to enhance their skills and understanding of volunteering. Training provides the volunteers the opportunity to learn new capabilities and will enhance their volunteering experience to be more enjoyable.

To recognise and appreciate the contribution of volunteers, ACCA implements a Volunteer Award Scheme in which all ACCA volunteers are eligible to participate. A special event, “ACCA Volunteers’ Appreciation Day” is held to thank all volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to serve a good cause.
