Our volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds and experience. Each bringing their own individual set of skills but all bringing a strong desire to make a difference in the life of a child.
Our carers have been sourced from Eastern Volunteers, OT & Physio University Students, Church members, Early Childhood Educator’s network and local people.
