EnVizion Group provides training services to local disadvantaged Indigenous people with multiple extreme learning barriers. It is the only Indigenous training provider in the Cairns regional district. So when EnVizion staff approached ICV for help, volunteer and chartered accountant Michael was more than happy to lend a hand.

Their request was a very practical and urgent one. They needed help to finalise their outstanding audit to enable the organisation to stay afloat. And they wanted to review current practices and develop guidelines and procedures to help manage future audits successfully.

EnVizion strives to help people who face barriers to employment and education. It provides individuals and families facing difficulties with the opportunity to build self-esteem and make better choices for their future. Services include building life skills and social reintegration, addressing many important issues including employment, education, health, homelessness, addiction, and family and domestic violence.

This was Michael’s first volunteer placement with ICV, and everyone is delighted with the outcome. 

Vicki Brookes from EnVizion says, “Michael arrived and got straight into his role of auditing our financials, and we were extremely pleased with his professionalism and advice throughout his stay. He has helped us better utilise our financial resources and continue our valuable service to the disadvantaged, mainly within the local Indigenous Community.”
