Volunteers help out at Stay & Play sessions, working directly with young children with disabilities and their families. There are always a range of activities including messy play, sensory activities, music, dance and story telling.
This is an opportunity to become part of the Early Years Team, volunteering directly with young children up to the age of 8 with various disabilities and additional support needs. Our Play Activities Volunteers' friendliness and enthusiasm help the children to explore different activities, encourages them to interact and play with others and to have fun. While the staff will lead each session, the volunteers play a very important role in keeping children and their family members engaged, You will help set up the space, chat with all present, be hands-on with activities and help review the successes and learning after each session. Initially staff will plan all activities. However volunteers will have the option to suggest and prepare activities themselves, for example if they have a hobby that they are passionate about that can be shared with the children. We are always open to new ideas!
