Volunteer to help us
What do Saturday volunteers do?
In the Contact Centre children of all ages spend time with the parent they no longer live with and sometimes other family members. Volunteers are central to making this possible. They work as a small team to ensure a safe, child friendly and calm environment for contact. Volunteers are asked to add their name to a rota (either once a month / 6 weekly). Volunteers help prepare the contact room with toys, games and crafts, serve refreshments and welcome parents and children. Volunteers need to be able to listen to children or adults who may be under stress, without judging, advising or taking sides. Volunteers are offered training and ongoing support, and we will arrange your enhanced DBS check.
If you become a Child Contact Centre volunteer, you will be joining a group of people whose work has made, and continues to make, a very real difference for a significant number of families throughout the whole of the United Kingdom.
