Work With Us
Whilst we exist to support families, we acknowledge that none of what we do would be possible without their contribution.
Kindred is an inspiring community made by families for families with children with disability, delay or medical needs. Our work is informed and strengthened by the parents and caregivers who share their lived experiences, insights and expertise with us.
We are often looking for/recruiting parents and caregivers to facilitate or present in workshops and peer groups. We have opportunities for people with experience, as well as those without, who are interested in learning.
We are often seeking parents and carers of children with disability to support our webinars, workshops and programs through online event facilitation and presentation. This is a paid opportunity, where training will be provided.
Do you have experience in copy or content writing? We are often searching for contractors or freelancers, ideally with lived experience, who can help us develop resources, booklets, online stories and articles.

What Guides Us

Frequently Asked Questions
Parents, caregivers or family members of children with disability or delays and medical needs.
Your child could be in the early years or adulthood. What’s most important to us, is that you share our values.
Lived experience of parenting a child with disability is not essential for content writers.
We have a range of opportunities available. It could be that you write a one-off resource or an article each term. In the case of facilitation, you would take part in training and then deliver either a one-off workshop or a series of events.
Given the breadth of our programs, we would aim to agree on a mutually beneficial level of commitment that works around your family’s needs and the time you have available.
Lived experience of parenting or caring for a child with disability; it’s this knowledge and wisdom you will draw upon when working with Kindred.
We encourage applications from people with and without experience in facilitating and presenting. For copy and content writing, you may have professional writing experience or personal experience in writing articles for a personal blog or another website.
Training is provided for all work opportunities – what it looks like will depend on the role and your experience level. It could be general facilitation training or training to deliver a specific program or workshop. Or training in understanding our brand voice and values. We also provide ongoing support.
Absolutely! From time to time, people come forward to offer their professional skills or expertise to support our cause.

If you have a particular skill or expertise and want to volunteer, get in touch with Stacey Touma, CEO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
