Family Sundays volunteer – Sundays 10am–1pm

This session improves the health and wellbeing of children 3-9 years and their families through a range of activities including football coaching, dance with Rambert (the world class contemporary dance company based on the South Bank), arts and crafts, and workshops for parents. Childhood obesity is a huge issue in the capital and these fun mornings give children and their parents the opportunity to be active and learn more about nutrition and health. It is very popular session and we are keen for volunteers to help with registers and admin, provide refreshments as well as leading creative projects and health and wellbeing workshops.

Main Duties

  • Help set up and ensure the space is safe and welcoming
  • Welcome families and complete the register and registration forms
  • Offer refreshments including tea and coffee and healthy snacks
  • Engage families in activities and workshops
  • Be friendly, engaging and a good listener
  • Help tidy up and debrief after the session
  • Plan for future sessions
  • Be vigilant to any safeguarding or health and safety concerns and flag them up with the appropriate staff member as soon as possible.

Sessions are at the Colombo Centre in Waterloo. As the sessions are on a Sunday we are looking for volunteers who can take responsibility for running elements of the activities and become a vital part of the team. We are expanding our volunteer programme and are keen to involve you in shaping how we work with volunteers to give them more responsibility, recognition and opportunities.
