Volunteer to help us
What do Saturday volunteers do?
In the Contact Centre children of all ages spend time with the parent they no longer live with, and volunteers are central to making this possible. They work as a small team to ensure a safe, friendly and calm environment for contact. When on duty (roughly once every 6 weeks) you prepare the hall and toys, serve refreshments and welcome parents and children. You need to be able to listen to children or adults who may be under stress, without judging, advising or taking sides. You will be offered training and ongoing support, and we will arrange your enhanced DBS [Disclosure and Barring Service] check.
If you become a Child Contact Centre volunteer, you will be joining a group of people whose work has made, and continues to make, a very real difference for a significant number of families throughout the whole of the United Kingdom.
