Volunteer to help us
What do Saturday volunteers do?
In the Contact Centre children of all ages spend time with the parent they no longer live with, and volunteers are central to making this possible. They work as a small team to ensure a safe, friendly and calm environment for contact. When on duty (roughly every 6 weeks) you prepare the hall and toys, serve refreshments and welcome parents and children. You need to be able to listen to children or adults who may be under stress, without judging, advising or taking sides. You will be offered training and ongoing support, and we will arrange your enhanced CRB check.
If you become a Child Contact Centre volunteer, you will be joining a group of people whose work has made, and continues to make, a very real difference for a significant number of families throughout the whole of the United Kingdom.
Are you interested in helping us?
We are often looking for new Saturday team volunteers and Bristol Child Contact Centre is especially keen to have a balance of male and female volunteers (more men welcomed!) and also to represent the many different cultures of Bristol families who use the centre.
Please email (see form on our “Contact Us” page) or phone us on 07511 290505 for further information about becoming a team member, as we like to have contact with you before issuing application forms.
