About the role
Multiple Volunteer Positions Available
Put Them First is a Brisbane based not-for-profit that started as a conversation between two passionate foster carers back in 2017 and has since grown into a small group of dedicated volunteers and advocates. Due to continued growth, we are seeking additional volunteer superstars to join our team!
About Put Them First…
At Put Them First, we are committed to making positive changes in the current care system because we believe that every child has the right to love, care and protection and this extends to those children in the alternative care environment. What began as an exchange of ideas and similar experiences, has now become a determination to raise awareness of the issues around children in alternative care and also, to make a real difference in their lives.
Some current practices for children between 0 and 2 years old going into foster care, can result in significant trauma. The care system faces many resource and support challenges which need to be urgently addressed, so that carers can go back to what is essentially their most important role – to put the safety and wellbeing of the child first. This is where we come in.
Our immediate priorities are to create safe and appropriate spaces for visitations (our Lullaby House initiative), making nappy bags available for carers to support babies going into their care from hospital and the delivery of mentoring programs for carers and biological parents to support reunification. You can find out more by visiting putthemfirst.org.au.
