Helping other people can be one of the single most rewarding experiences that you can take part in. At the Disability Support Project we do just that on a daily basis and help those with disabilities and difficulties find the financial support they desperately need.
Below you can see any roles we presently have available for our voluntary positions. It is a great way to join the team, get your training and could lead to a paid position in the future should funding become available.
