There are two levels of volunteers as detailed below. Unfortunately, we do not provide ‘placements’ for students training in other organisations. All volunteers must have “working with children” certification.
LEVEL ONE VOLUNTEERS
These volunteers take the role of Support Workers in our children’s support groups. They must complete the following three day courses; ‘Core Course In Bereavement Counselling’ and ‘Working With Bereaved Children’. Please note, the Support Worker’s Course is by invitation only and by completing the course requisites mentioned above does not guarantee a placement. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak with our Clinical Director, Dr Elizabeth Mann, when undertaking a course.
LEVEL TWO VOLUNTEERS
To keep ‘A Friend’s Place’ warm and inviting for our children and their families, volunteers can also be involved with work behind the scenes, such as gardening, maintenance tasks, craft preparation, cleaning and organising of our craft centre. We also welcome opportunities for Staff Engagement with organisations. For more information call 1300 654 556 or email us.
