To be part of a small friendly team supervising and helping children (aged approx 3-10) doing craft activities at a long craft-table at one end of Stansted Family Cafe, a community project which provides coffee and cakes and a family-friendly environment for all family-members, as well as craft activities for children. Different craft activities are organised (by a team-leader) for each session, and explained during the set-up period immediately before the cafe. There is some scope to develop your own craft ideas for children, if you wish, but no obligation to do so.
The cafe meets 3 times a month on a mixture of Saturday and Sunday mornings with volunteers needed from 9.15am-12.15. Volunteers can opt to help out once, twice or 3 times a month. We have limited places for younger volunteers aged 14-18, as well as opportunities for adults.
Previous experience isn't necessary although an enthusiasm for working with children is essential. Safeguarding training and DBS checks will be provided as appropriate. Having your own creative skills/interests would be beneficial but not essential.
