Ballymena & Little Steps Sure Start
Ballymena & Little Steps Antrim SureStart provides a range of services to both children from pre-birth up to four years, and their families.
Services consist of both individual and group support and operate from two centres , covering eight identified electoral wards within Ballymena. The project comprises a multi-agency and multi-disciplinary team and works in close partnership with a range of statutory, voluntary and community groups, to provide a needs led approach to the delivery of services in the area.
Services cover three main themes which are:
- Family Support
- Play and Early Learning

All our services are FREE! Our Projects play an essential role on giving children and families the early support they need.
Bucks Activity Project
Bucks Activity Project
Providing short breaks for disabled children and young people aged 0-19
Bucks Activity Project provides community short breaks to children and young people aged 0-19 with disabilities and additional learning needs across Buckinghamshire. We currently have around 300 children registered with the service and have been running for over 20 years.
Short Breaks have positive benefits for both children and young people with disabilities and their parents and carers. They give children and young people time away from their family so they can develop independence, learn new skills, make friends, and reduce loneliness whilst giving parents and carers a break from their caring responsibilities and providing time to spend with other children in the family.
At the moment we are looking for volunteers to help us run our project. We need people who are enthusiastic, fun-loving and pro-active to help out in our sessions with the children, and we also need organised and focused people to help us in the office with our admin tasks.

Galafield Community Centre
Community Cafe Volunteer
Action for Children is a national charity that supports and speaks out on behalf of the most vulnerable and neglected children and young people in the heart of communities throughout the UK.
In Newcastle we run the Galafield Community Hub and Cafe, in the Outer West of the City.
The Galafield Community Hub in Newbiggin Hall is a thriving centre serving the whole community. We have Sports and Leisure activities, support groups, Dance, New Baby sessions and Adult Learning. Alongside this we have specialist support when needed such as benefits advice and a Foodbank.
The Community Cafe is a new venture at the heart of the centre. This is a welcoming and friendly place for people to drop in and relax, with a Soft Play Centre opening soon. We are providing the space for people to re-connect and end the isolation that COVID has imposed.
We are looking for volunteers to support the Cafe Manager to provide a warm welcome to everyone using the cafe, to assist in the day to day running of the Community Café, e.g. preparing food and clearing up in compliance with Food Hygiene and Health and Safety regulations (full training will be given), to help special events e.g. children’s events, family cook sessions, pensioners lunches.
Action for Children are Passionate, Ambitious, Collaborative and Inclusive. We aspire for every child and young person in the country to have a safe and happy childhood and the foundations they need to thrive.
