Grandparents and Grandkids - Support Group Co-ordinator

Community Services Regular - more than 6 months Bathurst NSW

About this opportunity

There are many Grandparents in Bathurst and surrounding areas who now have the responsibility of raising their grandchildren. This is a huge task - so we would like to offer a social support group which recognises the many issues involved for Grandparents, as well as a place to connect with others who are in a similar position. The friendly and open Co-ordinator will organise a weekly or monthly group to meet together, organise activities for and help support participants. Morning / afternoon tea will be provided.

Additional requirements

National Police Certificate *. Working with Children Check *.

* May be arranged via the Organisation. Details to be provided on expression of interest.
Time Required

As we expect that this will be a weekly / monthly group, the time required could be a couple of hours a week or month. Face-to-face time would most likely be a couple of hours per session, with a couple of hours helping to organise / co-ordinate the group and facilitate supportive phone calls.
