Play Worker

Volunteers are required to attend to the children through play. This could be 1:1 or small groups at the twice weekly family group meetings. The people appointed will be part of the therapeutic team and other duties will include occasionally preparing snack time and making drinks.

On Tuesday and Friday mornings, from 9.30-12.30 (parents and children meet from 10 to 12 o'clock.) Once every three months we have a shared lunch and at the end of each month we have a team meeting. We have a large secluded garden for play on fine days, and we stay open during the school holidays.
