IDCARE’s Community Outreach Program
About: One of IDCARE’s charitable objectives is to provide “identity theft prevention awareness services to the community, such as community education on prevention and response measures”. One way to contribute to this objective is to conduct information sessions to community groups, schools, and Chambers of Commerce. Since September 2013 IDCARE has delivered over sixty such presentations across Australia and New Zealand.
Find out more: please email IDCARE email@example.com if you would like IDCARE to contribute to your community outreach.
