Play Worker

Our commitment to delivering the highest quality non-formal education programmes and outcomes runs through all of our work with children and young people, including our after-school clubs, youth clubs and digital inclusion provision.

We provide services for children and young people who are significantly disadvantaged by a living environment that lacks either outdoor spaces or alternative providers. Put simply, there is simply nothing else for children and young people in the local area to do.

Events Organiser

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting. We have volunteers that carry out a range of different activities and we are currently looking for volunteers to plan and organise their own awareness raising and fundraising events. If you want to develop your project management skills, have good organisational skills and like meeting people then volunteering as an Events Organiser could be for you.
