Volunteer with our Community Visitors Scheme
One of the most amazing ways to give back to your community and contribute to a worthy cause is by volunteering. At Co.As.It., we are proud of our wonderful Community Visitors Scheme (CVS), in which volunteers are paired with members of our community, who they visit once a fortnight to share some company and conversation with. It’s a great way to meet new people, practice your Italian skills and to care for someone who may be isolated or in need of some social support. You can read more about our CVS program here.
Come Along to Our Events
At Co.As.It., we believe in the importance of celebrating our Italian cultural heritage and contributing to our community. We run a series of events throughout the year, many held at the Italian Forum Cultural Centre in the heart of Norton Street, Leichhardt. You will also find us hosting concerts, charity fundraisers, educational seminars, mental health events and chatting with our community at street festas. Our biggest event is the prestigious Italian National Ball, which marks the celebration of the Festa Della Repubblica, and has been attended by several Australian Prime Ministers, including current PM Anthony Albanese. There are many exciting events in store for 2023, so to keep up with our Co.As.It. community, and make sure you don’t miss out, remember to Like and Follow us on Facebook.
