You won’t be on your own in this process! ACF staff and a team of volunteer leaders will be here to support you.

Calling party host welcome sessions

We're running online welcome sessions for everyone who's hosting calling parties! Come along to learn more about hosting, meet others and ask any questions. Next welcome session:

  • Wednesday April 17, 1-2pm AEST – RSVP NOW

If you can't make it to an online session, you can check out the recording of a previous one, or book a time to have a phone call with a member of our team!

You can also connect with others hosting calling parties via the Facebook group or on Slack – an instant messaging platform that will allow you to talk to ACF staff and other volunteers in real time. You can use Slack on your computer through your web browser or download it as an app on your computer and phone. If you haven’t used it before, check out our user guide. You will receive an invite to Slack when you register your event on our website. Check your spam folder if you don’t see it in your inbox.

Please be patient if you don’t get an answer to support questions immediately. We will get back to you as soon as humanly possible – we have a lean team and rely on volunteers to get to scale. At peak times we can get overwhelmed by requests! Other call party hosts may have similar queries to you – so by joining us on the host welcome sessions and posting your questions to Slack or in the Facebook group, we can respond in a way that everyone gets to see the answers!
