Opportunity Description

Activity Assistant.  We hold a regular Youth Club for any young carers who want to come, on alternate Wednesday evenings (5-7pm) for different age carers (one week primary school age, the following week secondary school age).  If you're over 16 you can support our younger group and if you're 18+ you can support both groups.  You'll work in within our team of staff and other volunteers, preparing and taking part in activities (games, crafts, lego, computer games, sports etc).  We also provide a filling meal so you might be on kitchen duty some weeks! You'll play alongside the children, making sure they have lots of fun, and also be a listening ear if they have any worries they want to talk about.  Join our fun-loving team and we'll pay you for any travel or other expenses and you'll receive training and ongoing support.
