Volunteers are especially important to Tassie Mums, they form part of an important team and Tassie Mums relies on this team to fulfill its purpose. Together we can help more Tasmanian babies and children have a happy and safe start to life
It is important to Tassie Mums that all volunteers can operate in a safe, respectful and supportive environment and that all internal and external relationships reflect and observe these values.
We encourage all volunteers to be involved, welcome new ideas and listen to and action concerns. Any areas of expertise that volunteers may wish to bring to the Tassie Mums community are also welcomed.
We continually take all possible steps towards ensuring that our volunteers enjoy their participation with Tassie Mums in a safe and supportive environment.
All new volunteers are asked to attend a session at least once at our Taroona HQ as a form of induction to best get an understanding of what it is we do and how we do it.
Who are we?
Tassie Mums is a not for profit volunteer based group that is passionate about providing essential items to babies and children in need. We collect donations of new and pre loved baby and children’s clothing and other small items through donation bins which are supported by local individuals, schools and businesses.
Donations are carefully sorted and bundled by volunteers and then “rehomed” via social service organisations to Tasmanian families across the state. The recipients of bundles are determined by the welfare agencies which request goods from Tassie Mums.
