Volunteer with us

Every small job that is done saves another item ending up in landfill and helps another family out.

Geelong Mums operates on the generosity and talent of our volunteers and all contributions of time are valuable. We need help with all sorts of tasks big and small: 

  • Safety checking prams, cots, highchairs, car restraints etc 
  • Accepting and sorting donations as they come in 
  • Meeting with social workers to help them choose the best items for their families
  • Sorting donations and making up linen and clothing bags 
  • We also need help in the office with general administration tasks

Sign up to be a volunteer!

If you are keen to get involved please email us with a quick summary of your skills and interests. We will invite you along to the next induction so you can meet some of the team and see what we do first hand.

Geelong Mums is a member of Volunteering Victoria.

Please note: Some volunteers bring their children to St Kilda Mums’ premises. You are not required to have a working with children's check as you won't be supervising anyone's children. But in the interests of creating a family-friendly environment, St Kilda Mums does not allow persons who are classified as a prohibited person under The Commission for Children and Young People Act 1998 to register as a volunteer. A prohibited person is a person convicted of a serious sex offence, the murder of a child or a child-related personal violence offence, as well as a Registrable person under the Child Protection (Offenders Registration) Act 2000. St Kilda Mums also reserves the right to ask volunteers to undertake a CrimCheck (criminal record check). Please do not apply if you are a prohibited person or if you will not agree to proceed with a CrimCheck or a working with children's check if it is requested.
