Respite groups volunteer

  • VO85921


Description

Working with children and young people, aged between 5 and 15 years old. The respite groups are great fun for both the children and volunteers. We encourage volunteers to take part in all activities and their enthusiasm and attitude impacts greatly on our children and young people. Planned activities take place each week at group such as baking, sports and games. The activities vary depending upon the time of year and any current events or celebrations. We encourage volunteers to share their ideas and skills with us and are delighted for you to have input into the planning and running of activities. We are always thrilled to take on new volunteer and we will support you in your role.

Organisation aims and objectives

PKAVS Carers Services support unpaid Carers of all ages, living in Perth & Kinross and caring for family, partners, friends or neighbours. Using a holistic approach in working with people who have caring responsibilities we help carers retain a life outside of caring and develop skills or interests to enhance their own lives.
