THE ANKALI PROJECT
The Ankali Project was established in 1985 and has a proud history of community connection.
As a volunteer, The Ankali Project will provide you with the training and support needed to support socially isolated people living with HIV.
Your commitment includes a weekly or fortnightly engagement with an Ankali consumer. You are also required to attend to an Ankali volunteer support group, which is one hour each fortnight.
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
To become an Ankali volunteer you will complete an application and attend a three-day volunteer training program. This supportive, comprehensive training helps you to develop skills needed to support a consumer, and to gain an understanding of the many issues facing people living with HIV. Volunteers are asked to make a minimum 6 month commitment to volunteering, upon completion of volunteer training.
For more detailed information, please download the Ankali Project Volunteer Guide.
To become a volunteer please fill in the ANKALI APPLICATION FORM and return to ANKALI.
Please also find out more on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ankaliproject/
Ankali consumers come from diverse backgrounds, with different life experiences. A consumer must be someone living with HIV or a partner or family member of someone living with HIV.
All potential consumers are assessed by an Albion Social Worker. If they are deemed appropriate for volunteer support, they are matched with a volunteer.
Consumers may be experiencing one or more of the following issues: social isolation, grief and loss, mental health-related issues, alcohol and other drug-related issues, or a time of significant change.
