Easter Holiday Project Volunteer

We are a charity that harnesses the transformative power of play and exercise to help vulnerable children recover from complex trauma.

What You'll Do: 

You will be working with vulnerable children in West London (aged 5-11) with a history of various difficulties, including mental health, special education needs, history of abuse, etc. More than 90% of our children are referred to by social services and live in very difficult environments.

Your role will include

  • Supporting children at Solidarity Sports projects during school holidays. This may include running through playgrounds with our children, supporting them as they try bouldering for the first time, ice-skating, and many more fun activities.
  • Building a positive, trusting relationship with our children, and making them feel special and valued at all times during our projects.  

 

Why You'll Love It: 

Our children are wonderfully affectionate and fun, you will not only get to have hands-on experience working with our children, you will also have lots of fun doing all sorts of activities with them! 

What You'll Learn: 
  • All training is provided by the Solidarity Sports team before the project, other training opportunities may also come up along the way to build CV and experience.
  • We have projects during term holidays (e.g. half-term, Christmas), if you continue volunteering with us you will have opportunities to undertake further training such as in child safeguarding.
What We're Looking For: 

We need enthusiastic volunteers who are ready to dedicate their energy and affection!

All volunteers will be DBS checked before volunteering.
