Your Village Needs You!
What's the plan?
So often we hear about the village that once was and talk about it with longing. Modern day living has isolated us at a time when we need our communities. Asking for a friend is almost taboo and a lack of trust misconstrued as privacy is breaking down relationships.
What if we had the village we needed? What if we can rebuild that mentality and support structure where we can offer a cooked meal when we see a family struggling or accountability when we are working on our self care and well being but the demands of family life keep causing distractions?
Do you want to be part of that change?
Do you have some spare time to socialise, support and grow? We would like to create a team of leaders that genuinely want to make a positive impact whilst learning new skills and theories which can be applied to your future endeavours, careers or entrepreneurial aspirations.
So what are we looking for?
We are looking for kind people that genuinely wish to support other.
People that have some spare time and are ready to invest in their own personal development.
People with an interest in social justice and core community values.
People that are ready to look into themselves to address and heal past trauma, acknowledge bias and seek to improve social outcomes.

Why do we need volunteers?
So often these services are required by those from all walks of life but are unobtainable due to lack of funds or simply because we prioritise other monetised products or services.
We know that people generally place value on things they invest some value in so it is a fine balance of investment and subsidising to make it an obtainable service for those that need it.
We cover all associated costs and expenses and also invest in the education and personal development of our Village Leaders at no cost to you.
If you are interested in working with us and have not seen a job vacancy for a role, please do get in contact for a chat. You might just be exactly what we didn't know we needed.
