Activity Volunteer 2018/19

This opportunity takes place from 01 Mar 2019. Applications closed on 22 Feb.

Activity Volunteers encourage social inclusion and integration. Firstly, by facilitating community activities, clients can engage with fun activities such as sewing empowering them to learn new skills and make friends. Activity Volunteers also provide childcare for clients' children during community activities or for vital counselling appointments, ensuring survivors can access the support they need.

What skills do I need?

We look for enthusiastic individuals who enjoy working with children and vulnerable people.

What will I gain?

You will gain valuable experience working with vulnerable communities and learn from experienced social workers and trained professionals.

Training and support

Training will be provided by professionals through a three-hour session, which will give you a good foundation for working with survivors of human trafficking. A DBS check is provided.

Time commitment

Childcare can vary dependent on different counselling appointments, but there are regular opportunities through the community activities. Childcare only takes place in the Snowdrop Project office. This role requires up to 2 hours a week commitment.
