Team Jak provides practical and emotional support to children and young people with cancer and related illnesses, their family and friends and those bereaved.
Team Jak Ambassadors can have different roles including family support and fundraising, including - raising awareness and fundraising opportunities such as bag packs, helping at a merchandise stand and collection buckets in supermarkets, schools, colleges, shopping centres and concerts.
We will be hosting a number of larger fundraising events in Aberdeen throughout the year with the aim to raise £70,000 to open our Jak’s Den in Aberdeen.
Family support roles can be rewarding and involve anything from playing with the children during our activity days and at our child and teenage groups, to making tea and coffee at our support sessions, talking with parents, sorting out merchandise bags and delivering to our newly diagnosed warriors in hospital, and preparing items for events.
Volunteers receive initial induction training, ongoing support and any further relevant training opportunities. Team Jak have an Awards scheme and we hold a yearly event dedicated to thanking our volunteers and celebrating their success. All volunteers make a real difference and are greatly appreciated.
For more details please contact: Caitlin Stewart (Children, Young Person and Family Coordinator) at email email@example.com or phone.: 07852 877157/ 01506 412302
This volunteering opportunity is to support our early year’s activities within our busy centre.
On a Tuesday we have our fun Mucky Pups activities. This is a messy play activity with sand, art and water etc. Parents come along and interact with their children.
We would wish our volunteer to speak to parents, filling up resources and help our caretaking staff set up the resources.
Good induction and ongoing support is provided to all volunteers. A fantastic opportunity to help at a busy and enjoyable group. All volunteers make a real difference and are greatly appreciated.
