Our helpers are the life-blood of the club and do all they can to provide the best possible experiences. We work as a family to support the young people. We’re always looking for more helpers and are really flexible on roles and time commitments.
Our helpers sell tuck, organise activities, sit on the committee, assist with fundraising, explain the finer points of getting pool shots on target, assisting with cooking. The list is endless. Every adult has something to bring to the group.
Whether you’ve an hour once a year or two hours every week, we’ll take it. Your commitment really can be as big or as a small as you want. If you help at sessions, we use an online sign-up so you commit to weeks you can make, and if things change, we understand. We won’t roll our eyes if you have to pull out. Life is life. If you’d rather do more back room stuff like admin, maintenance, or cleaning, that gives our youth work team more time to focus on the programme.
Getting to know you…
If you’re only helping for a one-off session, we’ll show the basics of the club but you won’t get a lot more. If you’re regularly helping and think this is something you’d be really keen on getting involved in (who wouldn’t?), we’ll offer a full induction and shadowing options with the opportunity to really flourish.
We want all our young people to be safe so conduct DBS checks on all our regular helpers. If you’re helping for the odd night and haven’t got a DBS or Safeguarding certificate, you won’t be left alone with the young people. This is to protect you and them. Safeguarding can be undertaken online for free. Some other courses fees will be fully covered with the prior agreement of the committee. These may be in First Aid or Food Safety, as well as best-practice sessions such as digital safety or principles of youth work.
