Medical professional volunteers
We welcome expressions of interest from paediatric sub-specialists who would like to contribute their expertise via video consultation and presentation. Interested doctors, and nurses and allied health professionals with education experience, may register here via our volunteer form.
The assessment and selection process is handled by our Advisory Group.
There may be opportunities to contribute across a range of organisational and operational skill sets.

Children born into poverty are almost twice as likely to die before the age of five as those from wealthier families.
