Volunteering Overview

Family Life was founded by volunteers, and it is the ‘volunteering spirit’ that has helped to grow the agency to become the vibrant and hugely successful organisation that it is today.

Today, about 410 members of the local community are active volunteers with every one of them making a significant contribution, either directly or indirectly, to Family Life’s work with families, children and young people. Some Family Life volunteers have been working with us since 1971, and for many people, volunteering provides them with a sense of belonging to the community, an opportunity to ‘give back’ and a chance to develop lasting friendships.

Volunteers are invited to make a contribution that suits their lifestyle, interests and areas of expertise.

Some volunteers prefer to work directly with Family Life clients through, for example, the Family Support programs while other volunteers prefer to work on a project basis, with, for example, the fundraising committees.

Training, support and ongoing supervision is provided for all volunteers.
