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.

Description

PlayPeace is a parent led service to support families who have a child or children with additional support needs. By offering play sessions which include children with additional needs, siblings and parents or carers PlayPeace aims to provide a welcoming, inclusive club which enables friendships, learning and play. It is in a safe setting with peer support for parents and carers.

PlayPeace was established in summer 2016 and now runs a variety of services. We are parent led and expanding, therefore looking to attract more volunteers.
Volunteering Opportunities - we are looking for volunteers who will provide extra pairs of hands to assist with the running of the club. Examples of tasks could range from:

  • assisting with the activities and outings on offer for the children and young people
  • assisting children who need more support to participate in the activities
  • helping with practical tasks such as at snack time
  • assisting with welcoming families or with registration/administration tasks
  • volunteer drivers to enable families with no transport to get to the club
    Volunteers will be an enhancement to the organisation; parents and carers will always remain in attendance.
