  • Commitment: Regular – more than 6 months
  • Time required: Once a month
  • Training: Training prior to commencement of volunteer service

Wesley Aunties & Uncles is an early intervention mentoring program in Sydney and the Central Coast where ‘aunts and uncles’ provide children up to 12 years old with mentoring, care, and guidance in a stable family environment.

Children in the Wesley Aunties & Uncles program spend one day or weekend a month with their mentors, participating in a range of weekend activities that help develop their social and life skills. All volunteer mentors undergo extensive child protection screening.

Wesley Aunties and Uncles are required to see their linked child for one day per month on the weekend or perhaps during school holidays. After six months this may increase to one overnight stay per month provided the volunteer has a spare bedroom and the child is happy to stay over.
