Big Group Hug

Logo for Big Group Hug

Deliver our precious aid packs to appreciative families.

Travelling between our new Tarneit pop up hub and our Airport West location, you'll deliver aid items to homes and organisations where our aid is destined to go. You can be the one bringing joy to families in need around Melbourne's northern and western suburbs!

Become part of a great community that makes a difference in the lives of vulnerable children and families.

The role

We currently need a driver on a Thursday. Our automatic van can be driven on a regular car licence – no special permit needed! If you’d prefer not to drive but want to be involved in helping deliver essential material aid to children in need, you can join the delivery team as a driver's companion, assisting with navigation, lunch options, finding the best coffee shops and most importantly, deliveries.

A typical day might look like:

  • Driving in one of our vans to/from our Airport West hub to the new Tarneit hub

  • Collecting donations from donors and drop-off points

  • Delivering donations to hospitals or community services

  • Loading and unloading the van with your journey companion and hub volunteers

  • Delivering donations to the homes of our very appreciative recipients.

    You will have the opportunity to:

  • Be involved in a great community organisation that makes a difference to families in need.

  • Gain valuable work experience and a reference.

  • Make new friends who share your interest in making a difference

Organisational background

Big Group Hug is a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organisation that supports vulnerable and disadvantaged families in need, by providing new and pre-loved goods to help these families care for their children, aged from newborn to 16-year-old. Our core belief is that all children deserve the best start in life, so for us, the child is the focus of everything we do. Our team is made up of over 300 individuals/volunteers who are determined and committed to assisting every family who asks for help. We receive requests for specific and essential items through Case Workers, Maternal and Child Health Nurses or other professionals in the community.

We encourage people from CALD backgrounds to apply and become part of our great Big Group Hug community!
