Our experience tells us that the best volunteering experiences and fundraising results come from peer-to-peer engagement. We work with supporters who want to use their talents, skills and experience to take on the role of advocate or community champion to identify colleagues and peers and motivate them to get involved in helping local communities.
We can advise you on how to formalise a best practice champions network and provide you with supporting tools to engage fellow employees easily and effectively. You also have the opportunity to visit local communities to gain first hand insights into the local needs and issues. To find out more about becoming an advocate you can either contact your company’s community team or contact us.
At an entry level to advocacy, we welcome you to follow our work and provide comments:
Freehills Foundation aims to increase access to justice and opportunity, prioritising reconciliation, homelessness, disability and health and global communities in need. We do this using our pro bono legal services, volunteering, fundraising and donations. The Foundation has forged key collaborations across the corporate, government and not for profit sectors to help make an impact and is proud of its longstanding association with United Way. We are involved in the Woolloomooloo Project which is a shining example of a cross-sectoral collaboration built by United Way to find secure housing for people who are homeless.
