If you would like to get to know families in a fun and informal setting then perhaps volunteer at our Family Day.
We provide a supportive, safe and stimulating environment for parents and children (under 5 years) to meet and make friends with other families and volunteers.

We run for one morning every week and try to continue on through all the school holidays as many other services for under-fives are closed. This is often a lifeline for isolated families who want somewhere friendly and free to take their children.

Why do our Volunteers and Families enjoy Family Day?

“Because it is just that – a FAMILY day..it is a place where there is a sense of community and family and people care for one another. It is a privilege to be able to help and it is a joy to see families supporting each other.” – Tamsin, Family Day Helper

“The staff are friendly and welcoming and the other mums and dads are good fun and I’ve made lots of new friends” – Naomi, Mum of three.

Would you be willing to give a morning of your time each week to help? Whether it’s setting up toys & equipment, serving refreshments, chatting with parents, playing with pre-school children, or running craft activities, there are all kinds of ways you can get involved!
