Ever wanted to get involved with the Children’s Centres to gain experience or share your skills? Then why not volunteer? It’s a great way to get involved with your local Children’s Centre, meet people and learn new skills.
It’s easy to apply, there’s a volunteer induction to help you prepare for becoming a volunteer and with an Action for Children certificate for each session – so good to add to your CV too! On-going training (including access to staff training) and out-of-pocket expenses are provided, plus supervision and support to ensure your volunteering is going well.
There are varied volunteering roles – something for everyone! Whatever your goal there’s a role to help you gain relevant experience. These include: Family Learning, Family Support, Breastfeeding Supporter, Health and Well-being, Play to Learn Team, Administrative Support Team, Trainee Counsellors, Resilience Services.
Volunteering is a great stepping stone to work or training and Action for Children can provide work experience, student placements and apprenticeships too. We have between 5 and 10 volunteers of all ages in each centre and we have volunteer meetings and events.
