JewishCare has recently launched a new initiative: the Affiliated Professionals Program. JewishCare is a not-for-profit organisation which supports members of the Jewish community in many ways eg Aged Care, Disability, Mental Health and Well being, Family Support (including the Domestic Violence Program and Prison Outreach). In addition to other issues, many of its clients experience financial difficulties and have reported that they often cannot afford to access professional services. In response to this, JewishCare is calling on professionals in the community who would consider offering occasional services to those in need on a pro-bono or Medicare only basis. Please contact Charmaine Silove at email@example.com or 02 9302 8024.
