Do I have to be a parent of a premature or sick newborn to volunteer?

No you don’t. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and having a premature or sick newborn is not a prerequisite. We do however have a large group of mums and dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles and friends who want to give back to this worthy cause.

How much time would I need to commit?

As a volunteer for Miracle Babies Foundation you decide how much time you can commit. Many of our volunteers also have work, family and social commitments. We are grateful for any time volunteers can give.

What skills do I need to be a Miracle Babies Foundation volunteer?

Outside of our NurtureProgram roles, that require our Volunteers to have been a parent of a ‘NICU’ or Special Care Nursery baby, there are no specialist skills required to be a volunteer. All we ask is that you have a genuine passion to make a real difference and have empathy for families who have experienced the birth of a premature or sick newborn. Any prior fundraising, event management, administrative, public relations or project management skills are definitely a bonus!


Are Miracle Babies Foundation volunteers required to undergo any special checks?

Depending on the role volunteers may be required to undergo a National Police Check and a Working with Children Check. You may also be required to attend an interview and undertake reference checks.
