Volunteer Opportunities

Hubs PlaygroupThe Community Hubs Program is based in primary schools. It aims to support migrant and refugee families (including children 0 to 5 years of age) by offering meaningful social activities, as well as access to support services, including local education, health, community and settlement services.

The creche assistant will support children aged 0 to 5 years in supervised play while their parent/carer takes part in learning or program activities run through the Community Hub. Parents are usually within close proximity to their child if not in the same room.

Child minding assistants are required at various locations in Bankstown, Cumberland, Parramatta, Blacktown and Fairfield, and must be committed to regular attendance at two sessions from 9am to 2pm per fortnight during school term.
