How You Can Help


Community Fundraising gives our supporters the opportunity to use their imagination, creativity and motivation to hold their own fundraising events or activities, and thus become community partners in our work. Learn More


We believe all Australians have the right to literacy, because being able to read and write is the key to accessing education and employment, and to participating fully in society. We would not be able to complete our work without the generosity of people like you. Learn More


We truly value our volunteers and there are a variety of different ways that individuals can help. If you would like to volunteer your time and/or expertise we'd love to hear from you. Learn More
