Barnardo’s – Volunteers Needed NOW!

Do you have some spare time? Would you like to help make a difference to the lives of young people across Wiltshire?


Barnardo’s provides a range of services on behalf of Wiltshire Council and are looking for volunteers to support us in our Wiltshire Short Breaks Scheme to support children and young people who have additional needs.

They are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who have lots of energy to support with the following;

• Support at activity sessions one Saturday per month in Bradford-on-Avon, Chippenham, Trowbridge or Devizes (as well as the possibility of one day per week in each town, during the school holidays)

• Supporting children and young people aged 8-18 to access and participate in the activities available ranging from arts, sports, gaming, cooking & local trips.

• To support with the setting up and tidying away of activities

• To participate in group and one to one activities and most importantly HAVE FUN with children and young people

• You will work with the support and direction of an experienced play coordinator and you will receive induction training before commencing the role

Knowledge/skills/attitudes required:
Some previous experience of this service user group would be helpful but not essential. You will need to be confident, enthusiastic with plenty of energy. An interest in sport, music or the arts would be particularly welcome.
