Looking for a volunteering opportunity with a difference?

Help provide emotional and social support to socially isolated people.

Each year, the Ankali Project provides 3 separate 3-day training sessions to prospective Ankali Volunteers.

Once the training has been completed, as a volunteer, you will be matched with a client who is socially isolated living with HIV.

As a volunteer you will be providing emotional support as a friend, community access and social support.

This could include going for a walk, going to local cafes, going to the movies, art galleries, dinners – you name it!

There is no expectation that you will be out of pocket, and you’ll be supported with establishing healthy boundaries with your client as the relationship progresses.

As a volunteer, you will attend a weekly support group to debrief and recieve support from other volunteers.

The Ankali Project Social Work staff is also there to support you, every step of the way.

Since 1985, The Ankali Project has trained more than 2000 volunteers. You will join a community of volunteers who come from all walks of life, but have the time and commitment to want to make a difference in the life of someone else.

If you have any questions about the service model, or the commitment, please make contact to discuss further.

We are a NSW Health funded service, and are located in Surry Hills as a division of the larger Albion Centre clinical multi-disciplinary medical centre.
