The Society is run primarily by a volunteer workforce from all walks of life. With the support of paid professional staff trained in social work, community service and counselling, the Society provides a raft of services that help chronic illness sufferers to improve their quality of life. Currently, CCCIS has over 50 volunteers working on a part time/casual basis, and one full time volunteer managing the Society. CCCIS draws on the personal experiences and skills of their volunteers and provides on-going training to their volunteer staff. Small grants are also offered to volunteers who require further training externally.
