Would you like a chance to gain new skills, access accredited training, help families and feel valued in your community? Becoming a children's centre volunteer means you can give something back to your community.
We are looking for a range of volunteers who are enthusiastic, have some time to give and want to make a difference to the lives of families across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
We have a variety of voluntary roles available across all children's centres that require as little as an hour or two of your time a week. For example:
- Volunteers can help to promote children's services within the community.
- Volunteers help support the running of children's centre sessions.
- Volunteers help to support our advisory board and help to shape our services.
- Volunteers help to befriend families and help them to access services and support.
If you are interested in volunteering and would like more information please email email@example.com.
In return for volunteering we can offer you an accredited award by the Open College Network which also prepares you for volunteering in the community. We call this core community volunteer training as you will study eight units specific to volunteering in a the community. For more information, please see our leaflet on becoming community volunteer or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also offer all our volunteers training in:
- Food hygiene level 2 (accredited course).
- Safeguarding children.
- Emergency paediatric first aid (accredited course).
- Manual handling.
- Signs of Safety.
- Office and reception skill.
