    Resource: Senior Committee Members & Volunteers Resource Kit for ethnic senior citizens clubs in Victoria

    The “Senior Committee Members & Volunteers Resource Kit” has been developed By Australian Multicultural Community Services, National Ageing Research Institute and the Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing through consultation with ethnic senior groups to support multicultural communities. This Resource Kit is designed to build the capacity of community groups and to support seniors from culturally diverse communities to increase understanding of volunteering activities and to promote volunteers’ participation. The Senior Committee Members & Volunteers Resource Kit is available on the AMCS website, click here

    We are proud to recognise the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, as the first Australians, cultural leaders and traditional custodians of the land from which we advocate for ethnic community groups. We pay our respects to their elders, past & present.
