|Disability Support Volunteer|
Location: South Eastern Melbourne
We require our volunteers to be supportive, enthusiastic, friendly and understanding. We enjoy having fun on our programs, helping participants develop new skills, gain independence, explore and embrace new activities, celebrate achievements and positively engage with their peers and the community.
Flexible Respite offers an exciting range of recreation and camp activities and individualised respite supports for children, and adolescents with a disability. Activities are age appropriate, fun and planned by our participants. They provide a great opportunity to make new friends and explore what the local community has to offer.
Our programs give a family, who have a child with a disability, time to focus on their other children, spend time with each other, go shopping, maintain the home, enjoy a night out and refresh and strengthen their relationship.
You can help by
OzChild volunteers range in age from 16 years to retirement age. All volunteers will be required to complete Police and Working with Children Checks before beginning their volunteering role.
Support and training
New volunteers are invited to attend the OzChild Disability Services orientation training sessions. These sessions are a valuable and essential step in the process of becoming an accredited volunteer with our program. OzChild volunteers receive valuable information and ongoing training opportunities to develop new skills through accredited and non accredited courses.
