Volunteer with us

Create life-changing impact for new parents and families. Join a strong volunteer community. Gain skills and a sense of fulfilment.

Our volunteers

Our dream is that wherever there is a parent who can benefit from the program, we will have a trained volunteer to offer support.

Is volunteering with Mum for Mum right for you?
Are you a mother with older children, and a lifestyle which allows you time and flexibility?
Are you interested in learning about relationships, and the way we can support and empower others?

Do you have the time and energy to
  • attend 10 hours of initial training
  • attend supervision/ongoing training sessions for up to 2 hrs fortnightly (minimum 1 per month)
  • visit a mum in her home or a venue of mutual choice once a week, for about 1.5 hrs, for the first year of her baby’s life
  • Are you prepared to travel up to 20 minutes from home to visit a mum?
It is a unique privilege to share a mum’s journey of motherhood, to delight in her and her baby, to validate her experiences, and to respect her choices. The consistency and non-judgemental relationship you develop with the mother will enable her to be the best parent to her child. The skills you develop will enable you to encourage her to access the additional professional support she may need to increase resilience.

Express interest

I leave each visit with new appreciation, learning about resilience and strength, and feeling grateful for the support I get from the Mum for Mum volunteer community.
