CIT­I­ZEN Ad­vo­cacy Perth West mem­bers cel­e­brated Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week by en­cour­ag­ing West Aus­tralians to get in­volved.

CAPW co-or­di­na­tor Ros­alind Lewis said ‘give happy, live happy’ was the theme of this year’s Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week.

Ms Lewis said Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity to high­light the role of vol­un­teers in the com­mu­nity and to thank the more than six mil­lion Aus­tralians who vol­un­teered.

CAPW iden­ti­fies and as­sists peo­ple with in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­i­ties who may be vul­ner­a­ble or fac­ing spe­cific chal­lenges or risks.

“Most of the peo­ple we as­sist do not have a sup­port­ive net­work of in­volved fam­ily,” she said.

CAPW is seek­ing peo­ple to take on a range of vol­un­teer roles. No spe­cific ex­pe­ri­ence is re­quired. For de­tails, visit www.capw.org.au.
