Why Volunteer?Volunteers are key in enabling charities or not-for-profit organisations to achieve their vision of a more caring and cohesive society. In addition, many organisations do not have the resources to employ the wide range of skilled professionals their clients could need.
How You Can VolunteerThere are many opportunities to volunteer at home or abroad as an acupuncturist. Depending on the organisation, the people you treat could be homeless people, indigenous people, asylum seekers who have experienced trauma as a result of persecution in their country of origin, or even young single mothers living in refuges. Many of these people don’t have the resources to access quality holistic care.
All organisations will require that you have appropriate qualifications, experience and first aid training. In exchange, you will be supported by the organisation and given training, briefing about your clients and the appropriate security.
