Volunteer

Why volunteer?

We are parents helping parents! 

Our team of trained volunteers provide emotional and practical support to other english-speaking parents who are finding life with a young family particularly challenging. 

Volunteering enables local families to give something back and participate fully within our local community. 

What do volunteers do?

There are volunteer roles to suit everyone.

Ideal volunteers are:

  • good at listening 

  • understanding of the difficulties associated with raising a young family away from home

  • willing to share their experiences and provide reassurance 

  • able to encourage families to widen their network of relationships and use support services available
