Our Purpose

Indigenous Community Volunteers (ICV) exists to provide opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to develop human and community capacity in order to improve their quality of life, health, social and economic wellbeing and participation in Australian society.

ICV works directly with, and at the invitation of, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, families, organisations and communities. We connect them with a national network of skilled volunteers from backgrounds as diverse as child care, IT, manufacturing, law and medicine.

Our role in the community is to facilitate partnerships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the broader Australian community, governments and the private sector to work together towards a more equitable society.

We are a collaborative, partnership driven organisation providing access to skills, expertise, resources and services in urban, rural and remote communities where health, economic and education opportunities are often limited.

For some Indigenous people, the simple things in life, like a good job, healthy children and a happy family, are still just a dream.

Together, we’re making dreams come true.
