As a volunteer-based organization, it’s our volunteers that make our work possible and so we’re committed to training, empowering and caring for our volunteers.
Most of our volunteers are members of bereaved families who have first-hand experience of what it’s like to lose a child. Their loss has opened their hearts to greater compassion and service and their love and remembering of their child has inspired them to “give back” by serving other families who are dealing with the very difficult experience of the death of a child at any age. However, not all of our volunteer opportunities require first-hand experience of child or infant death in your family, so if you’re fortunate to have never personally suffered the loss of a child please keep reading - we have lots of opportunities for you to make a contribution too!
This guide is a brief introduction to the MISS Foundation, to give you a sense of our focus, our values and our programs, to help you decide whether you’d like to volunteer with the MISS Foundation, and to let you know how our volunteer assessment and on-boarding process works.
Give it a read and if you’d like to apply to volunteer, then fill out this application form and we’ll start getting to know each other and exploring the best way that you can make a contribution within our organization.
