Young Carers School Club Volunteer - Dengie Primary Schools

A Young Carer is someone between 8 and 18 years, who cares for someone in their family or household due to a disability, illness or drug/alcohol addiction. Our charity offers these young people support and respite in the form of a youth group during term time and days out during the school holidays.

A volunteer is needed to facilitate Young Carers Clubs in schools for a new project for Young Carers in primary schools in the Dengie area (Burnham, Southminster, Tillingham and Maldon). This would involve interacting with and supporting the young people in a variety of activities. These include organising sports, crafts and assistance with IT/homework.

The groups will held during the school term, in school, either during the school day or after school. These are yet to be set up so days and times are flexible. 

Skills

As a volunteer you would be expected to be empathetic, considerate and have a fun approach. In return you will be offered an interesting and rewarding experience, with ongoing training and development, in a supportive environment.
