About this opportunity

Family Support Volunteers visit families needing support, encouragement and information to enable them to better understand their children's developmental needs, respond more appropriately to challenging behaviours and to enhance the self-esteem of parents and their children.

Family Support Volunteers provide practical help and emotional support through the development of a supportive relationship. Volunteers are able to draw from their experience as a parent, grandparent, or their experience in the early childhood sector, to make a unique contribution to the community.
