How much time do I need to give?
Our weekly YOUTH CLUBs are on a Wednesday evening from 5-7pm during term time. Or perhaps if you're still at school or college our fun Holiday and Half Term programmes would suit best. You can choose how often you are able to attend.
How long will I have to commit for?
Again, it's your decision - if your circumstances change then you are under no obligation to stay, although of course we would hope to have you on board for as long as possible!
Will I get my expenses paid?
Yes, we will pay any costs you may have, such as transport or meal expenses, although often these will all be provided for you.
What sort of things will I do for Young Carers Service
TERM TIME WEDNESDAY EVENINGS 5-7pm
Help prepare and join in with activities at weekly youth clubs - arts, crafts, games, etc., talk and listen to young carers and be supportive. Or at half terms and holidays help with other local activities (skating, bowling etc), or go on trips outside the borough (seaside, theme parks etc)
Become a Mentor or Befriender to a young carer - we will give you continuous training and support for this role.
Help in the office with answering the telephone and the 101 other admin jobs that always need doing!
Please note: You will be required to undergo the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) enhanced process before working with children.
