AFFMA has made a terrific start to 2017.
We have a new fundraising/marketing team. These dedicated volunteers have started to expand our brand and raise awareness with community organisations throughout the Inner West. As a result, we have had a significant increase in donations and funding.
Our volunteers have also made lasting partnerships with several local businesses around Newtown. Our community involvement has brought us new clients through increased inquiries and referrals. Receiving the 2016 Volunteer of the Year Award has had a great impact in this regard.
Significant number of new volunteers joined.
We have also had a number of new volunteers join us and start making significant contributions to the organisation.
Additionally, AFFMA has started to expand our legal team. We have a new migration agent coming on board and a number of talented legal assistants joining the organisation. We are also expanding our service to include partner visas. This is particularly important for our clients who wish to begin a new life in Australia with their partners by their side.
AFFMA has started developing in house training for our volunteers, including the provision of fact sheets and legal information. This information will be available on our website in the near future.
