Work as a Children's Centre volunteer

Working with parents and children under 5 at a Children’s Centre can be really rewarding. You can learn new skills, feel part of the community, work as part of a team – and boost your CV.

We can also give you a job reference after 6 months of volunteer work, after training.

Volunteers get involved with:

  • organising events, projects and activities
  • admin
  • cafés or gardens
  • becoming a Children’s Centre buddy or champion
  • being a volunteer representative.
