The more we give, the happier we feel.

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some, it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Regardless of the motivation, what unites them all is that they find it both challenging and rewarding.

Village Buddies

Village Buddies assist young people who need a positive adult in their lives

In light of the COVID19 pandemic, SunnyKids is activating our risk management plan to ensure all activities are in line with government requirements to ensure the safety of our staff, service users, stakeholders and partners.

As such we have cancelled all village buddy interactions until further notice. However, we are still keeping other services open and if you need support please phone (07) 5479 0394.

SunnyKids Village Buddies are community members who volunteer their time to be with young people who have a need for another positive adult in their lives. SunnyKids Village Buddies Program engages the local community to help raise the kids in the local ‘Village’. Village Buddies are screened, trained and matched to young buddies interests and requirements. It may be as simple as kicking a ball around in a park, teaching a child to fish or taking a child to sports sessions or art classes. Whether you have regular and consistent time available or adhoc – WE NEED YOU!


Village Volunteers

SunnyKids Village Volunteers are integral to our organisation

Our volunteers are the people that come together and make magic happen at our events, help us with our administrative needs, support us with event management, offer their maintenance services, initiate fundraising initiatives or get their creative genius on with our Kids Club. Most importantly, our volunteers act as SunnyKids advocates in our Village. We welcome you to register your interest to become part of the SunnyKids ‘Village Vollies’ Team.


Event Volunteers

Would you like to volunteer at our events?

We are always in need of extra help. Please register your interest to help coordinate our events.



There are many children who need help and just aren’t getting it. Early intervention is critical to ensure these kids reach their full potential.
