We have a specific routine of care and stimulation for each child to ensure their developmental milestones are on track.

As a Volunteer, you are expected to uphold our standard of care and protection of The Almond Tree babies and children.

Volunteers must go through a vetting process and specific training with The Almond Tree to work with vulnerable babies and children.

The Volunteer Training will equip you in the following ways:

  • You will understand the background of the home
  • You will understand the type of children that are in our care
  • You will understand your role and part to play
  • You will find purpose in your service as a Volunteer
  • You will know the Do’s and Don’ts
  • You will be confident
  • You will be able to answer questions the public may ask you about the home
  • You will be a positive representative of The Almond Tree in our local community

There are various ways to get involved, you may have a certain skill set you wish to offer to The Almond Tree.

For example: a handyman, bookkeeper, doctor or therapist, teacher, organizer or sorter.
