We are delighted to welcome volunteers to LS29 Time from all walks of life. From professionals with a background in special needs, to young people who are looking for work experience, we have volunteer roles for all.
All our volunteers play a vital role in keeping LS29 Time running. Our volunteer roles include:
Helping to organise activities (if you have an interest in arts, sports or music you'd like to share, we'd love to hear from you!)
Supporting keyworkers in caring for children
Preparing snacks and drinks
Taking photographs for our social media and marketing
Acting as role models and buddies to the young people
Tidying and cleaning up after activities
Volunteers need to be over 16, have two references, and be willing to have an enhanced DBS check if required. We welcome volunteer enquiries from people with additional needs.
We currently hold sessions in the Bradford Local Authority Summer, Easter and Christmas holidays. Volunteers are invited to attend our staff and volunteer briefs and debriefs at the beginning and end of each session. You will be offered two 15 minute breaks during a full day session/one 15 minute break during a half day, and £5 expenses for each full day worked.
Several of our volunteers have moved on to paid work at the holiday club, and we are always happy to provide references for regular volunteers.
To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Supported volunteer scheme
18-25 year olds with additional needs who have attended holiday club previously are now welcome to come to holiday club on our supported volunteer scheme. Volunteer roles will be agreed in advance that suit their age and skills, and support will be provided to facilitate the experience. We would like to make this scheme as accessible as possible to young people with more complex needs.
If your young person has attended holiday club sessions before and you would like to find out more, please email email@example.com
