Thank you to all our volunteers, past and present for being the difference that makes a difference.
LEAP Volunteering Opportunity: Family Contact Helper
The Leap Children and Families Centre is accredited by NACCC (National Association of Child Contact Centres).
We provide a safe, caring, confidential and impartial service for children to remain in touch with parents after separation or family breakdown and we are looking for Children’s Contact Centre Volunteers to support family contact sessions between children and the parent that they no longer live with.
You will need to be caring, non-judgemental, confident and positive, helping children to feel relaxed and safe at the centre.
Previous experience of working with children and families would be a bonus but not essential.
Duties will include setting up play areas, making refreshments, organising toys, resources and craft activities, supporting children and parents directly where required, some basic admin and re-organising the room after sessions.
In return, we will provide training, support and an opportunity to be part of a fantastic team, working within an amazing charity.
Current sessions 3.30pm – 6.30pm on Thursday and 9.30am – 12.30pm on Saturdays.
You would work on a rota basis depending on your availability, with some flexibility to meet the needs of children and families coming into the centre.
Location: Based in Ashton under Lyne
