Make a Difference

There are many ways you can get involved and support our efforts to help those we work with to build connections and live their best lives. Some of the ways you can help us include:

  • Making a one-off or regular donation
  • Establishing a corporate partnership with us
  • Fundraising
  • Volunteering
  • Remembering us in your will

Each of these will help us expand what we can offer, whether in the form of more services or reaching more people. Below you can learn more about how you can play a part in supporting the people we work with to live the life they want, their way.

Make a Donation

Every donation – no matter what size –  helps us create more opportunities for the people we support. To make a one-off donation, complete the form on our secure donation page, or contact us to make a donation over the phone.

Read about our 2017 Christmas Appeal and the difference you can make this Christmas.

As you might imagine, striving to expand what we offer takes a lot of resources. A regular donation is a wonderful way to help create more opportunities for someone living with disability. A monthly, fortnightly or even annual donation from you will make an impact. To set up a regular donation, please complete the form on our secure donation page.

Donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Volunteer

There’s no question that volunteering is a great way to feel alive and connected with your community. We think that to volunteer with Unisson Disability is particularly special. Spend just a small amount of time with us and you’ll quickly feel valued and warm to the joy and satisfaction you’ll gain as a Unisson volunteer.

Whatever your life skills or experience, we are likely to have a valuable role you can play.
Some examples include:

Spend time with a person with disability. Be yourself and spend time with one of the people we support by heading out to lunch, to a movie, or shopping.

Offer an experience to be remembered! Do you have some funds that could cover something truly memorable like a day on the harbour, a trip to Luna Park or ten pin bowling? With help from Unisson staff, create a day that’s out-of-the-ordinary for the people we support.

Team corporate days With multiple homes to care for we can always use willing hands! Perhaps you have an internal team wanting to make a difference by taking on a painting or building project or even a garden makeover.

Administrative support There may be under-resourced areas that would benefit from your admin skills and help us increase our efficiency or our capacity to do more.
Every year, volunteers contribute thousands of hours in helping us support the people we work with.

Fundraise

Fundraising for Unisson Disability is a wonderful way to help us and those we support twice over — by raising funds that allow us to offer more services, and by raising awareness of what we do in the process! 

There’s a number of ways we suggest to get people to donate those all-important funds, and we’re more than happy to help you succeed. Here’s just a few ideas to get you started:

  • Host an event in aid of Unisson Disability, like a movie night, morning tea, or concert.
  • Ask friends to donate to us in your name if you’re taking part in a charity event
  • Nominate us in your workplace giving program
  • For birthdays, Christmas, or wedding, tell friends and family to donate to Unisson Disability in lieu of gifts
  • Donate in memory of a loved one

Remember Us in Your Will

Remembering Unisson Disability in your will makes a huge difference to the lives of people with disability and it is a truly beautiful legacy to leave. It can make a meaningful impact on our capacity to carry out our mission to treat people as individuals and to make it possible for those we support to live their best life.
