WE WELCOME volunteers.  There are many opportunities to get involved, whatever skills and time you have to offer. Some roles require specific skills and experience whilst others are more general. For example, we’d love help with our newsletters, writing and designing flyers, welcoming people at training events, supporting workforce learning at workshops, supporting parents groups in schools, running a coffee morning or training to deliver workshops for us.

Volunteering can help you too. We will give you the support and training you need to volunteer with us and training runs regularly across county, (see Events and Meetings on the website for more information). We always reimburse travel expenses and can help with childcare expenses if agreed in advance.

Volunteering can be an opportunity to socialise and meet new people and can sometimes be the first step to getting valuable experience for a paid job. We can help you with writing your CV and offer references.

Please contact us for more information and for details of current volunteering opportunities. Email , call 01903 726188 or tick the relevant box on the membership form if you are a new member.

Fundraise For Us

WHY NOT FUNDRAISE by holding an event for us? A coffee morning or a raffle? Ask your school, playgroup or workplace to join in too and make it a family event! If you are a UK Taxpayer, we can claim Gift Aid on your donation.

We can help you publicise your event and give you tips and ideas. We can also provide collecting boxes. All monies raised go directly towards providing support for parent carers. Please email or call 01903 726188 for more information.
