Become a Consumer Representative

To help us develop our services to continue to meet the parenting support needs of families across NSW, Karitane is looking for a variety of people willing to donate a small amount of time that’s convenient for you. Whether you are a mum, a dad, a student, a retiree, a community leader or a professional, we have a volunteer role for you. A small amount of time can make a big difference!

What are consumer representatives?

A consumer representative is a volunteer who provides their own ideas or gains the ideas of others to assist Karitane to continually improve our services.

Consumer representatives could interview clients for feedback, be a committee member, provide expert advice in their field or share their experience as a user of Karitane services.

We will make it easy for you to get started and be flexible to suit your available days.
