Volunteer with us

 

We are always looking for volunteers - both adopters and young people - to help us deliver events, training and fundraising.

There are a number of ways you can invest your time to benefit our adoptive families:

Become a Buddy

As an Adoption Focus adopter you could provide peer to peer support to another family starting out on their adoption journey

Fundraise on our behalf

Organising a bake sale, entering a sponsored event or hosting a social gathering are all effective and enjoyable ways to raise money to help our adoptive community

Share your Adoption Story

Have you adopted? Would you be willing to share your story? Either through our newsletters and website to help us recruit more amazing adopters, or even speaking at our adopter training.

We find the best advocates for adoption are families who have adopted and we would love to share your experiences with others. 

Become a Trustee

Our Trustees are integral and valued members of Adoption Focus and positively influence how effective we are in the future by playing a critical role in the accountability and fulfilment of all of our legal responsibilities.

The position of Trustee is a voluntary role.

Other ways to volunteer

  • Join our panel - we have our own panel made up of adoptive parents, adoption professionals, independent Social Workers and medical professionals. 
  • Adopters Committee - our adopter committee meets three times a year and is instrumental in planning future topics of training, social gatherings and children’s events so that our services continue to meet our adoptive families’ evolving needs.
