We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Creche Volunteer

  • VO73144


Description

Al Masaar provide opportunities for mothers who are new to Falkirk and within the ethnic minority community to learn and develop new skills. We have a room set up for a crèche with toys and activities - we just need you!

Our project, Wee Steps, is a mothers and babies/toddlers group, where we support and nurture mothers. Whilst they are developing their skills, we need a reliable and friendly person to look after and engage the children with activities. This is a great opportunity to get experience with children whose first language may not be English.
