Volunteering is good for you
Research shows that volunteering leads to improved physical and mental health. (Australian Bureau of Statistics 2007)
When you volunteer with CPS you:
We would love to hear from caring people who can help in the following ways:
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.
‘Because I am a mother and grandmother myself, I felt I had a lot of experience that I could bring to the program. The right kind of support can really help a mother in a difficult situation. That’s what’s so good about CPS.’
For more details or to sign up as a volunteer, please contact our Mentoring Mums Coordinator on (03) 9450 0900 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers are always welcome at the Children’s Protection Society Op Shop at 43 Beetham Pde, Rosanna (in Melbourne, Victoria). The CPS op shop raises significant funds to support the work we do in the community.
The shop is open from 10am-4pm, Mondays through Fridays and 9.30am-12noon Saturdays, closed Sundays, public holidays and between December 22 and January 23 during the Christmas/New Year period.
Volunteer shifts are normally three hours, either weekly, monthly or depending on availability.
