Ways to Volunteer

Do you have a few hours to spare?  Volunteering with Parent’s Centre is a great way to meet new people and get involved in a no-pressure environment.

Below are some specific roles that we need help with at the moment, but if you don’t see something that suits you, just let us know how you’d like to contribute.

You’re also welcome to volunteer for a one-off helping session. This is a great way to meet other parents, or you could even get together with your antenatal group for a session.

If you’re interested, just let us know.

Committee Vacancies

Advertising  Coordinator
This role involves coordinating our Discount Scheme for members, liasing with businesses who wish to be part of the scheme, or who may simply want to advertise with us. The role is really flexible time wise and might take a few hours per month.

Parent Education Coordinator
We’d love to deliver more parent education as we know there is lots of demand for this. This role involves finding opportunities (toilet training, toddler behaviour, first aid, whatever our parents want!) and making them happen by finding a venue, booking a facilitator and publicising the class. Take on as much or as little as you can.

Grants Officer
We need someone to help us apply for more grants from community organisations so that we can deliver bigger and better services to our community. This one is a great CV builder and something that we can job share and support you to learn.

Our long-serving treasurer would like to move on soon – do you have skills with accounts and/or Xero, or want to learn?

General Help
We have a number of areas where we would like to call on members to help in general.

  • Articles for our newsletter – one off or regular contributions on topics of interest to our readers

  • Helpers for pack making sessions/fundraising events/one off tasks
  • Antenatal Class Hosts
