Volunteers are vital to Family Works and make a significant difference to the operation of our agency.

As a volunteer you can give as little or as much time as you wish, on days and times that suit you. There are some volunteer roles that require an ongoing regular commitment whilst others are more flexible. There are also one-off opportunities. 

As a volunteer you can provide valuable help and support in many ways. For example:

  • supporting our facilitators to deliver parenting courses
  • providing administrative support such as answering phones and helping out around our offices  
  • coordinating focus groups who give feedback and input about our services 
  • helping out with fundraising activities. 

We also offer specialised roles for qualified social workers , counsellors and other professionals. 

It’s important that you find your time as a volunteer enjoyable and rewarding, so we’ll work with you to find opportunities that are suited to your skills and interests.
