Club Helper for Hart & Rushmoor Young Carers

Opportunity

Our Young Carers project provides respite sessions at youth clubs in both Fleet and Farnborough during term-time to give young people time-out from their caring responsibilities for an adult or sibling in their family.
As a volunteer club helper you will support our youth club workers by assisting with small group activities, such as arts and crafts, cooking or physical activities - being on hand to chat with our young people and often providing an empathetic ear.

We have openings for volunteers at the following times and locations:

Monday afternoons/evenings:
Venue: The Point Youth Centre, Harlington Way, Fleet,
Junior Club Session: (School Years 5, 6, 7, 8) runs from 17.00-18.30.
Senior Club Session (School/College Years, 9, 10, 11, 12): runs from 19.30-21.00.

Wednesday afternoons/evenings:
Venue: Mayfield Community Centre, Totland Close, Farnborough,
Club session (10-18 year olds): 17.30-19.30.

Skills

Excellent communication skills.
Available in term time only - either weekly or fortnightly.
Ideally volunteers must be 18+ (in order to maintain our adult to young person ratio) however we can accommodate volunteers aged 16+ who are interested in gaining experience working with young people.
