Peep is looking for caring and enthusiastic volunteers who would like to help at our baby and toddler groups throughout the city. We offer free groups that promote attachment based activities (i.e. singing, book sharing, different types of play) to parents and carers in Aberdeen. Our groups are very popular with most having a waitlist, but as a small team we can only offer so many sessions. We’re initially looking for volunteers to help us at the groups but there is a potential for volunteers to receive training to eventually deliver their own Peep groups.
If singing and playing with small children isn’t for you, we’re also looking for volunteers to help us with our resource library. Our library has approximately 5000 items and it is a job in itself to keep it up to date. Our library needs someone who can help us clean, sort, repair, and develop new resources that can be used at groups. Although not essential, we appreciate volunteers who can and are willing to sew and be crafty!
For further details please contact Natasha Martens, Peep Coordinator at E Mail: email@example.com or tel.: 01224 248389.
