Family Fun Day Play & Activity Supporter

  • VO77645


Description

Nourish are a registered charity based in Kirkcaldy who provide support for families who have additional support needs. They do this by running several groups throughout the week. These groups include a group for adults with additional support needs, family support groups and dads' groups; in addition, once a month, Nourish holds a family fun day for families with additional support needs.

They have a variety of activities for families to take part in. These are usually well attended and lots of fun. They are looking for several volunteers for this. Tasks would include helping to set up an activity area, support families/children to access/play take part, then clear area away at the end of the session. They also require someone to make teas/coffees at these events and someone to run our tuck shop. This would be one Sunday per month from 1-5pm.
