Voluntary
Job description
  • Do you want to make a difference to a young person’s life?
  • Do you have 1- 4 hours per month to spare?

We urgently require more volunteers, so why not volunteer as a mentor/befriender for NYAS as an Independent Visitor for children and young people in care.  As a volunteer you will:

  • Have fun, take young people on outings and maybe share a hobby, sport or interest
  • Offer support and a listening ear and be a positive influence in a young person’s life and help build self- esteem and confidence

You don’t need any special qualifications

We are looking for reliable and dependable people from all walks of life

We will provide training and on-going support. We will pay expenses to a set limit.

Here is what some of our young people and volunteers have to say about this rewarding role:

  • I like how my Independent Visitor isn’t anything to do with social services and is here to support me not to judge.
  • They have boosted my confidence, now I feel like when I go places I can just relax and have fun.
  • My young person always looks forward to me coming, they have had such a disjointed life, I am a stable figure in their life and this has to be important for them as everything else changes around them a lot.
