The Best Way to Invest Your Time
You can help abused kids and struggling parents in a practical way by volunteering your time with CPS. We would love to hear from caring people who can help in the following ways:
Mentoring Mums is a volunteer mentoring program offering social, emotional and practical support to vulnerable, new or expectant mothers.
This innovative program matches trained mentor/volunteers with new mums for ongoing support to mums who are pregnant or have babies aged up to 6 months. The mentor is a volunteer from the community who is a mother/grandmother herself.
Mentors work to build a trusting and consistent relationship with mothers, supporting them in their parenting role and connecting them to the community by encouraging access to health services, maternal and child health services, parenting groups and other community services.
For more details or to sign up as a volunteer, please contact Mentoring Mums Coordinator Amanda Swift on (03) 9459 2065 or (03) 9459 8885 or by emailing email@example.com
