LiveWires relies on 12 volunteers to help run the program each week. We offer volunteers the opportunity to help give back to their local community by helping to build children's resilience and enhnace their learning and creativity. Volunteers will help with:

- preparing meals and delivering afternoon tea and dinners
- art and craft activities to support children's creative expression
- sport and recreational activities that teach children ball handling skills and learning through play
- personal coaching and support.

The program aims to supports the children by providing them with opportunities to regulate their emotions, feel safe and creates avenues for improved trust. We train volunteers in trauma-informed pratcice to ensure children are well cared for and looked after.

Children can from a variety of cultural and linguistic backgrounds and ATSI backgrounds.
