Independent Visitors (London and South East)

Location:   London and the Southeast Salary:   Closing Date:   28/02/2019

HOURS: At least 2 hours every other week

Could you befriend and support a child in care?

We are looking for volunteers for our Independent Visitors Project in London and the South East.

Independent Visitors are volunteers who befriend and spend time with a child or young person within Local Authority care. Our volunteers enjoy the challenge of building a lasting friendship and the children benefit greatly from a consistent, fun relationship with someone outside the care system.

This is a long-term, one to one commitment.

Full training and on-going support will be given, and out of pocket expenses paid for mileage and activities.

For further information about the role and the Independent Visitors Service, please send an email to Sharon Whittaker at Sharon.whittaker@coramvoice.org.uk. To apply, please click on the "Apply Now" button.

All posts are subjected to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check and successful candidates will not be able to work unsupervised with children or young people until the completion of this process.
