Have you had a baby in NICU/SCN and want to 'give back'?
Miracle Babies Foundation is Australia's leading organisation that supports premature and sick newborns, their families and the hospitals that care for them. Our NurtureGroup sessions are free play and support groups for families who have experienced the birth of a premature or sick newborn.
We are seeking motivated individuals who would like to make a difference and commit to coordinating our amazing NurtureGroup team based in Adelaide. Attendance is free for our NICU and SCN families who wish to attend.
As a NurtureGroup Coordinator, you are responsible for coordinating the preparation and execution of the NurtureGroup sessions within your designated location.
Your duties may also include: • Reporting to the NurtureGroup Manager located in our Sydney Head Office • Setting up, coordinating and packing down of NurtureGroup activities within the session • Providing further information of the Foundation’s programs, operations and services to members of the NurtureGroup • The first point of contact for any queries or comments from NurtureGroup volunteers and parents • Liaise and invite Allied Health Professions to attend • Contribute to an effective volunteer team including running team meetings where necessary • Maintain accurate records and regularly return them to the NurtureGroup Manager
Please only apply, if you have experienced your baby in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Special Care Nursery (SCN) , you are a people person, empathetic, and love making a difference - we would love to hear from you!
