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 fortnightly.
The program is run for NICU families to attend. Parents, family and friends can ask you questions, whilst you provide them the opportunity to share their thoughts, feelings’ and journey with you, knowing that you have also experienced a premature or sick newborn.
As a NurtureGroup Coordinator, you are responsible for coordinating the preparation and execution of the NurtureGroup sessions.
Your duties may also include: • Reporting to the NurtureGroup Assistant 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 had a baby in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Special Care Nursery (SCN).
If you are committed, a people person, empathetic, and want to make a difference - we would love to hear from you!.
