Becoming part of our extended family
The Italian Assistance Association – CO.AS.IT. (SA) Inc. is the peak body for ageing Italo-Australians in South Australia. CO.AS.IT. (SA) was formed as a collaborative initiative of the South Australian Italian community to support existing programs and respond to the growing demand for services within our community.
You do not need to be from an Italian background to volunteer with the Italo-Australian community and it doesn’t matter what age you are as there are many ways to participate. Some roles that volunteers can be involved with include:
Volunteering plays a valuable role in sustaining healthy, resilient communities
We work with a number of volunteer involving organisations (VIOs) across South Australia and within the Italian community to ensure people are placed in the right volunteer role. This also includes major volunteering organisations such as Volunteering SA and NT.
Italian Community Volunteer Awards
Each year a ‘Young Volunteer Award’ and ‘Senior Volunteer Award’ are awarded to individuals whose volunteer contributions and achievements have made a significant difference to the Italo-Australian community in South Australia.
If you know someone who has freely given their time for the benefit of the Italo-Australian community please get in contact with the Co.As.It. (SA) office and nominate them for this year’s awards!
