TADSA Technical Volunteers are people who like to make stuff. They help people overcome disability and age-related challenges by making or modifying devices and equipment that is not commercially available to build independence and support participation in aspects of life.
TADSA technical volunteers have trade and other technical skills, knowledge and experience in one or more of the following trades including woodwork, metalwork, electronics, plastics, fabrics, bicycle building and mechanics, engineering, (electronic and mechanical), computers and new technologies.
Technology for Ageing and Disability SA Inc (TADSA) does not have its own workshop, therefore TADSA technical volunteers require access to a work area which has tools and equipment where they can make or modify the required devices and equipment.
Being a TADSA technical volunteer is not onerous, but is extremely gratifying. Clients gain quality of life, volunteers gain meaning in life. Volunteering for TADSA does not mean that you will be kept busy all the time, some volunteers are called upon often, others rarely. It’s your choice. Most projects are one off because TADSA solves one off problems with one off solutions. For an example of the types of things TADSA Technical Volunteers make click here.
