Please indicate below the areas where you feel you can volunteer your support
Areas: Support expectant and young mothers in, or leaving, out-of-home care i.e. residential care, foster care, kinship care.*
Transport young women in out-of-home care to and from appointments and activities e.g. medical, extracurricular
Just be there as a friend for a young woman in out-of-home care; someone to talk to, to have a coffee with, to provide guidance. Many do not have a mother/aunt/older sister figure in their lives.
Give foster/kinship carers a short break or assist their foster/kinship care child/ren e.g. with reading, homework.
Supervise learner drivers as they achieve their 120 hours driving experience as part of the L2P learner driver mentor program. Volunteers will be trained by the TAC and VicRoads
Offer general volunteer support to the Bridge of Hope Foundation e.g. administration, book-keeping.
Provide your specialist expertise in a relevant area e.g. fundraising, counselling, forensics, criminal law.
Other, please specify:

*Out-of-home care parenting support/skills programs are oversubscribed, too short and do not provide the ongoing sustained support needed by young mothers. This places them at risk of Child Protection involvement and removal of their child
