What our volunteers say:
There’s nothing quite like the buzz of supporting another mother along her journey.
It could be feeling energised and reassured by connecting with more experienced volunteers/mothers or seeing a new parent have that ‘aha!’ moment or overcome a challenge.
I absolutely love being on Helpline. I have my regular shift, but try to help out where I can by doing extra shifts, especially overnights...
I became a volunteer when my third child was born because I felt that I had found my tribe and wanted to give back some of the support and wisdom that I had received.
Training gave me an opportunity to share with other mums who needed support. I have been able to use these skills in so many areas of my life, not just ABA.
