Are you passionate about wanting to work and support families and individuals in our local community? A community organization like ours needs good infrastructure, resources and staff to be effective – and that comes at a cost. There are many ways you can help –  consider partnering with us as “a Friend of Compassion Trust” – we welcome financial donations whether weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Or you may be able to help in practical ways:


  • Financial Mentors. Full training will be provided. Long term commitment required for this voluntary role.
  • Volunteers to assist with our 4 weekly community care programmes.
