We are looking for Volunteers to support people during a homeless drop in session in Bridgwater.

This is an extremely rewarding opportunity where you can offer something back to the community helping many homeless people in Bridgwater move forward with their lives as well as improving your own skills and building on your CV.

*POPULAR ROLE*

Group Support & Short Break Buddy

Location: Various across Somerset

Short breaks is a service for children with disabilities and their families across Somerset – as a Short Break Volunteer you could join a regular activity group providing respite for families and fun for children. Anything from soft play, building blocks, arts and crafts and outdoor play is on offer and the children and their families really value the support that volunteers give in facilitating the sessions and encouraging the children to join in.

Short Break Buddy’s work more directly with families and children – visiting the home and spending time with a child or young person giving the parent/carer a break; or one on one with a young person to help them to develop social skills and access things in the local community alongside their parent/carer.
