  • VO91105


Description

Baby Steps 20+ is recognised as a great resource for local families, by providing high quality pre-loved baby items at reasonable cost. A REVOLVE certified shop, our paid staff with disabilities offer a high quality service, which helps families who may be on low incomes, diverts waste from landfill, and creates paid employment opportunities from those furthest from the employment due to disability.

Volunteers will assist our staff with disabilities in their day-to-day work, keeping the shop tidy, serving customers, and making sure the shelves are well stocked with baby and nursery items.

The opportunity will involve:

  • encouraging and supporting our staff with disabilities in their day-to-day work
  • serving/helping with customers
  • cash handling
  • keeping the shop stocked
  • helping with our recycling activities
