Volunteers play an integral role in promoting social integration, combating isolation and improving the wellbeing of the parents and children that attend our groups.
Through building positive relationships within our community, volunteers directly help to empower parents and engage several hard-to-reach communities who don't normally access health and social services in Southwark, Lewisham, Leeds and North Tyneside.
PACT volunteer Mena describes PACT:
Who we’re looking for:
We are looking for volunteers who can support parents and young children attending our weekly groups. If you are fun, reliable and enjoy working with children, we would love to hear from you. There is no need to be an expert - just enthusiastic and willing to invest time to build relationships that make a world of difference. Parents who have in the past, or continue to, benefit from PACT services are also very welcome to put themselves forward.
Do I need to apply?
Yes, but before you apply, please get in touch with a member of staff leading the group that you would like to support. They will arrange for you to attend the activity you are interested in to get a feel and if you are happy to proceed, they will advise you on next steps.
