About the opportunity

A varied role taking place indoors or out, painting or singing but most of all you will get messy. The aim is to ensure young people and their families enjoy and achieve during group sessions.

Volunteers meet the needs of the service and the young people and their families through varied and interesting tasks including practical tasks. Guide young people and their families through the activities on offer, develop supportive relationships with young people and families and help them celebrate achievements alongside giving practical help to others.

Applicants will be DBS checked, receive training, and attend group support/supervision and team meetings as well as comply with relevant policies, paperwork and reporting concerns to the volunteer coordinator.

About Catch 22

Catch 22 is a local charity with a national reach. We work with young people who find themselves in difficult situations.
We believe every young person deserves the chance to get on in life - no matter what.
Whatever the reason for their situation, we help them out. We work with their families and their communities wherever and whenever young people need us most. As young people become more positive, productive and independent, the whole community benefits.

What are they looking for?

Good communication skills and commitment to supporting children, young people and families.
No specific experience necessary as training will be given for the role including opportunities to shadow.
Enthusiasm and a willingness to get stuck-in alongside the young people and their families.
Willingness to travel to other locations desirable (Catch 22 can cover all travel costs but cannot transport volunteers)

Travel expenses paid in line with policy.

Only registered members can apply for opportunities.
