Volunteer Get Together

We are holding 3 Peer Support  events in July. This is an opportunity for all volunteers to meet up, have lunch and socialise; as well as giving our newly trained volunteers some time to talk to experienced volunteers about supporting families and being part of HSK.  It also give Coordinators a chance to “Thank You” for all you do for us.

The Lunches will be on the last day of the current Preparation Courses at 12.30pm.
