Job Description

You can you make a difference...

You can help our smallest members live happily and healthily. You can be a part of encouraging children to reach their full potential and grow into confident individuals. You can support us in creating an environment where children feel valued, secure and loved. 

About the role…

You will be supporting in our purpose-built children’s centre for those aged 0-9 years on regular weekly service evenings. Children’s centre volunteers help to facilitate a variety of activities that focus on a different theme each week. The children’s centre is OFSTED approved and follows the national curriculum. We’re committed to delivering responsive, sensitive programming geared at building children’s emotional literacy and resilience while developing their physical, cognitive, imaginative and social needs.

As a Childrens Support Volunteer you will lead or assist a variety of activities from story time to pizza making! You will support on creative and educational sessions, stimulate imaginative play and build relationships with the children to enhance confidence and resilience. This is a rewarding role where you will work in coordination with the Head of Children’s services and therapists to support child development and emotional well-being.

Our service runs on Tuesday and Thursdays evenings from 4.30 – 9.15pm. We ask that volunteers arrive as close to 4.30pm as possible but we can be flexible in consideration of work commitments. Volunteers are expected to commit to one regular evening a week for a minimum of 6 months. All volunteers at Body & Soul will be subject to an advanced DBS disclosure prior to beginning their volunteering.

About Body & Soul...

Body & Soul is a charity dedicated to transforming the impact of adverse childhood experiences, supporting people of all ages affected by early childhood trauma like abuse, neglect, violence and family disruption.  We deliver a proven transformational programme for people of all ages who have experienced significant childhood adversity.

We believe that people should be able to live their lives free from shame, and no one should have their life chances reduced because of traumatic experiences in their past. We also believe that transformational change does not have an age limit.

We are looking for...

• Experience supporting children 0-9 years 
• Creative approach with an ability to engage in imaginative play
• A genuine interest in promoting child development
• Open to supporting on personal care needs
• Proactive, confident and personable approach
• Adaptability and willingness to learn

In return we will provide...

• A full induction programme
• Ongoing training from established professionals
• Ongoing support from Head of Volunteer Programmes
• Recognition programme

If you are interested in this position we would love to hear from you so please do send over a brief overview of why you would like to get involved and a CV of your experience.
