Community Mothers Program
What is the Community Mothers Program (CMP)?
The Connecting Community for Kids community mothers program is a unique volunteering opportunity for women who are passionate about improving the well-being of new mothers in the local community. Our volunteers are mothers, or experienced care givers, who are willing to offer non-judgemental and confidential support to new mothers on a monthly basis.
The community mother will be matched with a new or expectant mother and will build a trusting relationship, visiting them at home and spending time getting to know them and their families. The community mother supports her in her parenting role and assists in connecting her to the community, encouraging access to health services, parenting services and community groups.
We are currently recruiting, applications close on 15 March 2019. Interviews will be held on 19 and 21 March. Training will be held on 26 and 27 March. Apply via the application form below.
