Uniting Communities' Aboriginal Community Connect (ACC) program is a culturally specific Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals and families. Our team work closely with Aboriginal communities in the area to ensure that people remain connected to family and community while they're developing new skills. People will have opportunities to connect to resources to meet their health, education, employment and social needs.

As an Aboriginal Community Connect volunteer, you will be asked to provide the best possible service, while participating co-operatively as a member of the team and behaving in line with the values of Uniting Communities. You will work with all clients, staff and the public in a respectful manner that demonstrates an understanding of Uniting Communities' Vision and values. You will undertake assigned activities to ensure the day-to-day functioning of the assigned area(s).

The following list is a guide as to the duties that may be asked of a volunteer:

  • Provide a friendly, efficient service to clients
  • Assist the Group-work Coordinator(s) as directed, which may include helping in Art & Craft Classes, The Community Garden, the Pop up CafĂ©, SMART Recovery and other Group-work events and classes.
