Our Vision

Location: Newcastle Upon Tyne

We need volunteers to support our staff and the children and carers attending our groups who are resident in the North and Outer West areas of Newcastle.

 

Activities will include:

  • Supporting play between the children and carers within our venues and other community buildings
  • Promoting the learning opportunities associated with activities offered, which could be Parenting Groups or Adult Learning courses
  • Signposting carers to appropriate members of staff or other services for support and advice
  • Helping to set up and clear away after activities
  • Opportunities to accompany families to other groups and services
  • Reporting any concerns or problems to staff members
  • Contributing to the planning and evaluation to develop the group
  • Opportunities to become involved in other Action for Children volunteering roles locally and nationally
  • As part of Action for Children's Safeguarding Policy we will expect all volunteers to undergo a disclosure check. This will be organised by project staff

We work together to reach our vision of safe and happy childhoods. A diverse workforce enriches the lives of the children and young people we work with and we welcome applications from everyone. We value and celebrate our differences and as an inclusive workplace we want everyone to be themselves.
