- Raising and channelling funds to ACT through sponsored and fundraising events, mailings, internet promotion and speaking at meetings.
- Supporting the recruiting and channelling of personnel to ACT, including networking with and advising other charities who supply personnel to ACT, communicating information about personnel needs, meeting potential workers and advising on their suitability for this work.
