Family Support Volunteer

  • VO87643


Description

Family Support Volunteers support our experienced staff team to create a warm welcome and positive play environment in our Family Connections Centres. By providing activities and fun, we help children to build relationships with their parent after separation. This also requires a supportive approach to helping parents, who may still be struggling with the separation.

Volunteers help us to provide a positive and safe environment. We treat volunteers as equal team members, with an induction and training that helps you develop your confidence and skills for a future career in family support, or as a great way of sharing your existing skills in a great team.
