There are many ways to support ICSA.

As a self-funded non-government organisation we rely on donations and in-kind support to fund services for vulnerable people in distress.

Donate

We receive no formal funding from the Government for the services we provide to people of South Asian origin.

As a self-funded, non-government organisation (NGO) we rely on donations and in-kind support from the wider community to fund critical services for people in distress.

We use these contributions for support, information, advocacy and professional services for people who are vulnerable and in crisis.

All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible as ICSA has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) registration.

Volunteer

We are always looking for enterprising and altruistic companions to be a part of the ICSA story and journey. We are truly appreciative of the time, talent and experience each of our volunteers bring to ICSA.

  • training
  • support
  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
  • mentoring
  • learning skills such as maintaining confidentiality, keeping records, safety techniques and much more.

Being a buddy can mean a lot to our clients.
