Find your place

We reckon that community and purpose are two pretty vital ingredients to being human and we’re passionate about helping young people find hope and purpose in the context of a loving, supportive community. But that doesn’t just apply to our client group. Fusion is powered by volunteers who find their purpose in serving within a community of like-minded people who just want to use their gifts and skills to encourage others. In fact, the programs we choose to run are almost always directly based on the skills and passions of our workers. We believe in the importance of everybody contributing and having a place, whatever they have to offer.
