Other notes

As we work with children who lack confidence, are being bullied, are bullies,have emotional issues and sometines display behavioural issues- we require volunteers who are over 18 and have some expereince of working with children in any capacity. This programme will greatly assist you if you are looking to gain experience of working with children with a view to changing your career  or if you are studying at Uni or college and you need a placement, this will work for you. Please give Christine a call and have a chat to see if you would like to volunteer.
