The Indian (Sub-Cont) Crisis & Support Agency (ICSA) is a Volunteer Led Organisation (VLO).
ICSA is not funded by any source. It has a self-funded arm, with revenue-based services and receives small grants from time to time.
Core services are delivered by professionals in their own capacity at a no cost or pro bono basis.
It is fair to say the agency is run by UNPAID skilled workers.
We therefore rely on various working arrangements which suit our operational needs and fit in with work life balance of those who choose to support us.
All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible as ICSA has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) registration.
We invite members to join us in whatever capacity that suits them to help us continue our journey of being an agency run for the community by the community.
