We welcome encourage and need volunteers to facilitate and assist in the running of the centre and its activities. People from the local community volunteer by working in our coffee shop, helping and supporting children and adults in various activities, assisting with fundraising and charity events and outings, general maintenance work or admin support.
Through their volunteering a number of local people have gained increased confidence and skills, which has helped them to move into paid employment as a result.
“I absolutely love it, I love all the kids, all the staff, it’s such a lovely atmosphere.”
“It gave me a purpose and I feel like I’m making a difference. I love the people who I work with and the families that come here.”
“I had been volunteering at Kids In Action since January 2015, and have loved every second of it. I have always adored children and have always wanted to put a smile on every child’s face. I believe that whatever the circumstance a child always deserves to be happy and Kids In Action is just simply the best place for that. The continuous effort of all the staff that work here and all the great facilities they provide. I have never wanted to leave since starting, so I would have to say my biggest achievement of working here, is working my way up from volunteering as a Play Assistant to now becoming a Play Leader.”
“I like the time spent helping the kids if they are in the games room or multimedia room.”
“I wanted to put my time and energy into a role that benefitted others. It honestly brightens my day to see the children and adult members so comfortable in an environment where they can truly express themselves and make new friendships. Every member inspires me with their stories, as well as the families and carers that support them through and through. It’s an honour to be part of the Kids In Action family.”
