Play and Activity Support

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.

Support groups are run Wednesdays and Thursdays, and Nourish are looking for volunteers who can come along and support the children who attend to play and have fun, giving parents & carers an opportunity to sit and chat with other parents & carers. Duties would include setting up and clearing away the play areas.
