Volunteer with PlayPeace!

PlayPeace is a parent-led service to support families who have a child or children with additional needs. The organisation offers play sessions which include children with additional needs, their siblings and parents or carers. PlayPeace aims to provide a welcoming, inclusive club which enables friendships, learning and play in a safe setting with peer support for parents and carers.

PlayPeace was established in summer 2016 and operates mainly during school holiday periods. They are looking for volunteers who will provide extra pairs of hands to assist with the running of the club. Examples of tasks include assisting with the activities on offer for the children and young people, assisting children who need more support to participate in the activities, helping with practical tasks such as at snack time, assisting with welcoming families or with registration and volunteer drivers to enable families with no transport to get to the club.
