Are you wanting to help children in care achieve better tomorrows? We’re looking for caring, dependable and energetic volunteers to provide support from just four hours per month.

Highly flexible, the Friends Volunteer Program provides practical assistance to children and their carers across a number of Anglicare Victoria programs including foster care, residential care, kinship care and youth accommodation.

Various volunteer opportunities are available including occasional child minding, helping with transport to various events, tutoring, mentoring, or acting as a role model to young people in youth accommodation. The program is ideal for those who are time poor but want flexibility and variety. Friends volunteers nominate their availability ranging from a regular weekly, fortnightly or monthly commitment to helping out on an occasional basis.

The training session is designed to provide a solid introduction to the issues, challenges and rewards associated with providing a volunteer service to children and young people in care and the individuals caring for them. Attendance at a training session is a requirement for being assessed as a volunteer. Light refreshments are provided.

Venue: Anglicare Victoria, 7-11 Shipley St, Box Hill, Vic, 3128
