Join our highly successful corporate volunteer program
Many organisations form partnerships with The Infants’ Home to help us deliver education, care and health services to children and families facing hardship. One of our most successful partnership programs is The Infants’ Home corporate volunteering program. Hundreds of volunteers work with us each year to help maintain our equipment and beautiful grounds, create resources for children, support events, and contribute to a clean and pleasant environment for staff, children and families.

About corporate volunteering
The Infants’ Home runs a year round Corporate Volunteering program on our site at 17 Henry Street, Ashfield.
Following the temporary suspension of Corporate Volunteering due to COVID-19 we resumed the program in August, with a COVID-Safe Plan in place. We are now taking bookings for the remainder of 2020 and for 2021.
If your organisation is interested in volunteering with us, please register your interest here on our website, or call us on 9799 4844. We look forward to seeing returning and new corporate volunteers at The Infants’ Home again in the future.
Volunteering at The Infants’ Home is a great way for groups to strengthen their team dynamics as they work together to make a difference in children’s lives. Volunteers help to maintain our buildings and grounds, raise funds, cook BBQs, assist with events and support our children’s programs. We welcome enthusiastic participants!
Our scheduled day for groups of volunteers is generally Wednesday, although this can vary. It’s a day away from the workplace routine, out and about in the fresh air on our extensive and beautiful grounds.
You can read more about our corporate volunteering program here. If you are interested in registering your team for a volunteer day at The Infants’ Home in 2021, please check available dates on the 2021 Calendar here.

In line with our COVID-Safe Plan we are currently limiting our volunteer bookings to groups of a maximum of eight, with a minimum of five volunteers required to attend on the day). Hand sanitiser and hand washing facilities are available across our site, and stringent hygiene measures are implemented throughout the day. Volunteers are actively encouraged to maintain safe physical distancing, and are encouraged to wear a face mask where this is not possible.
