Volunteering opportunities

Learning Support Club & Respite Trips Assistant

The Volunteer Learning Support Club Assistant role provides much needed support to the project's Education Worker during the Homework Club for young carers. This club is more than a homework club, as this is a time for young carers to not only do their homework with assistance in areas in which they are not confident, but allows them to obtain skills in research and all areas of their education curriculum. The Learning Support Club Assistant should aim to help the young people attending the club to improve their educational outcomes and should work with the Education Worker to achieve this for all young carers attending the club.

Respite opportunities are also very important and we organise age appropriate activities for young carers during term time and in the holidays.
