Job description

Free To Be supports particularly vulnerable children to  begin to change their stories about who they are, and who they can be. We help children who have often grown up with significant adversity or hardship to more often feel proud of themselves and to experience feeling brave, adventurous, included and successful - often for the first time in a long time. 

 

We do this via overnight adventures and nature based residentials; after-school groups; and mentoring support. We work using the inherent power of the outdoors, animals, nature and self-expression - all of which are integral to the programmes we run. Children experience meeting animals at the farm, building dens in the forest, building rafts in teams to paddle across a lake, standing on the beach for the first time, cooking together in groups, camping out under the stars and a wide range of other activities all carefully designed to both broaden horizons, but also to scaffold the building of self-confidence, resilience, and trust in others.

 

In order to make these magical adventures a reality, there’s a massive amount of work that happens behind the scenes. We’re a small team and we would really benefit from some more administrative support. 

 

Activities could include: 

 

  • Making information packs

  • Making phone calls to families

  • Updating databases

  • Ordering equipment 

  • Supporting the needs of the charity in order to get the best results for the young people that we work with 

 

We are looking for someone who can commit to at least 1 day per week, 10am-4pm for a minimum of a year. We will cover out of pocket travel expenses. 

 

If you think you’ve got the skills to make a difference within a small but growing charity and would like to help us out, please get in touch!
