Our volunteers play such an essential role as part of our team at Dalwood Spilstead Service providing the extra pair of hands and a caring relationship for children and their families. These are rewarding volunteer roles, working alongside our dedicated team at Dalwood who are commitment to volunteer support and ongoing training.

Do you have an extra few hours in the week to support us in making a difference to the lives of children and young families doing it tough on the Northern Beaches?
