October Networking – Volunteering in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) World and Engaging Corporate Volunteers

October 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This special session will introduce interested participants to the impact of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) on the world of volunteering from the perspective of Cerebral Palsy Alliance. Cerebral Palsy Alliance (CPA) provides high-quality family-centred therapies, life skills programs, equipment and support for thousands of clients – people who are living with cerebral palsy and other neurological disabilities and their families. The Cerebral Palsy Alliance operates from 112 sites throughout metropolitan, regional and rural NSW and the ACT.

Learn how the NDIS has affected their volunteer programs, and techniques to navigate these new processes.

Cerebral Palsy Alliance will also showcase their corporate volunteering program, discuss ideas for running a successful and popular program. Create programs that provide significant financial donations and create a shared value for both the corporation, the volunteers and their organisation.

Speaker profiles:

Diana Piper; Manger, Volunteers  – Cerebral Palsy Alliance

Having started her working life in publishing, Diana moved across to the not for profit sector over 10 years ago, co-ordinating volunteers at The Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children at North Rocks. Here she managed predominantly on-site volunteers and corporate groups. On joining Cerebral Palsy Alliance, she became part of the Volunteers and Corporate Engagement team managing volunteers over a number of sites, including individual volunteers and corporate groups. Today, her work is mainly centred around skilled volunteering, and specialised volunteer programs.

Jude Beeny has been working at Cerebral Palsy Alliance in the same team for the past 7 and a half years, managing individual volunteers and with a particular focus on Corporate Volunteering. She works closely with the Partnerships Team to ensure corporate groups have a meaningful and rewarding experience. Between them they have extensive knowledge of managing volunteers and all that is involved in running a successful and happy program.
