Volunteers are a critical element of our civil society. Volunteering makes Australia a better place. Friendships made with people who are not like us, that come from connections made through volunteering, make us all more connected, more empathic with each other. As Sue says: “It's a human thing”. This is not just great news for people from CALD background with disability, like Gisele, but it’s great for all of us.
Is there something you have been planning to do, some volunteering, some way of connecting with someone or a group of people? What is stopping you? What can you do to make it happen?
