Young Person's Group Helper (The Base, Whitley Bay)
Barnardos is committed to providing Better Outcomes for More Children. Our childrens services volunteers help the charity to deliver essential services in local communities, providing support to over 300,000 children, young people and their families. This role provides a great opportunity to join our fantastic childrens services and help make a real difference.
Young Persons Group Helpers work across a range of groups supporting young people during their transition from being a young person to an adult. Groups tend to focus on a specific group or need, such as Care Leavers, Mental Wellbeing, LGBT+ Identifying Young people, Older Young Carers or Young Offenders.
Young Persons Group Helpers are key to the success of our groups, as they help to ensure the smooth running of our groups and are able to provide one-to-one support for young people who may need additional support or encouragement to take part in group activities.
We are looking for volunteers with a passion for making a difference in childrens lives, a fun and approachable attitude and an ability to engage young people in worthwhile and enjoyable activities.
