Volunteering at MBF
All volunteers of Miracle Babies Foundation work together for a common goal of providing "better, healthier outcomes for newborns and their families challenged by prematurity or sickness."

Our volunteers provide an integral service within Miracle Babies Foundation, helping many families through their Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Special Care Nursery (SCN) journey, and in raising awareness and much needed funds. They are the lifeblood of our organisation and without them, we would not be able to continue our work across Australia.

Miracle Babies Foundation volunteers come from all walks of life, yet they share one common goal: a passion for improving the lives of premature and sick newborns, and their families.

Due to Covid-19 some volunteer opportunities are temporarily unavailable or restricted, however please continue to apply so that our volunteer process can complete interviews, clearances and other requirements.

Why people like to volunteer for Miracle Babies:

Aside from wanting to work with others who are in crisis and need help at what should be one of the happiest times of their lives, people are inspired to volunteer with Miracle Babies Foundation for other reasons:

  • Professionals can represent their company and practice corporate social responsibility, or volunteer as a professional individual.

  • Students can enjoy meeting other young people and get work experience at the same time.

  • Those that are between jobs can make the best of their free time before starting a new job.

  • Retirees can make good use of years of experience and enjoy the social interaction.

  • Those with spare time can be rewarded with a fulfilling experience.

Corporate Volunteering

Corporate volunteering is a commitment by an organisation to encourage its employees to volunteer in the not-for-profit sector.

Corporate volunteering can range from individual volunteer effort through to team or entire company involvement. It can occur within company time, or a combination of company time and the employee’s own time.

Volunteering with Miracle Babies Foundation has an immense amount of benefits for employees, the community and companies alike.

Some examples of Corporate Volunteering include;

  • Giving staff a paid day a month in which they can volunteer to work for Miracle Babies Foundation.

  • Having staff members - particularly those with some expertise in financial or legal matters, volunteer to sit on the Miracle Babies Foundation Board.

  • Arranging a staff secondment program - for example an accountancy firm might second one of its staff to help during tax time.
