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.

Current opportunity

We are looking for volunteers who enjoy working with young people in a community setting. The youth club runs weekly on Friday evenings. Young people will drop into the club, and access the different services on offer. The aim of the group is to empower young people, and allow them to shape the activities on offer to them. The group enables young people to gain confidence and enhance their social skills, as well as have new experiences and activities. We are looking for volunteers who have skills or interests which they can share with the young people. As well as promoting the arts, music and sports we are looking for volunteers who are good listeners, supportive and full of ideas! We offer a free PVG and training.
