Child & Family Centre

To break the poverty cycle and give children the best possible start to life.

Our Child and Family Centre is an early intervention, preventative service that aims to break the poverty cycle and give children in Linthouse, Govan the best start possible in life. We do this through our partnership nursery, playgroups, parent-toddler groups, after school clubs, holiday clubs and parenting support groups.

The Centre also encourages parents to develop their own skills by offering Community Education led training on child development, positive parenting and computer skills.

Volunteers are needed 5 days a week, for building relationships with kids and parents, looking after the floor, and freeing up our staff for more one-on-ones with parents and children. There is opportunity to not just be working with children, but with the whole family to support parents in their parenting, and reduce the likelihood of the families needing help from our projects in the future.

Tasks include:

  • assist the play workers in setting up/delivering activities i.e. crafts, painting, reading stories etc.
  • supervise at free play time
  • develop positive relationships with the children
  • contribute ideas, e.g., suggestions for crafts, activities, etc.
  • cleaning and behind the scenes help

Mission Statement

We work with adults and children who are vulnerable and disadvantaged in Glasgow, people that are often leading chaotic or difficult lives. We want to help them to break free from their oppressive situations. That situation may involve: homelessness, addiction, poverty, family breakdown, prostitution, emotional issues, fleeing persecution overseas and now seeking asylum - or maybe all of these. We do this through our City Centre, Child & Family Centre, and Glasgow Winter Night Shelter projects as Christians who are passionate about the people that look to us for help. We want to share a message of hope and aim to have compassion for these individuals.

Description

Glasgow City Mission is the world’s first City Mission. Since 1826, we have been showing Christian care to vulnerable adults and children by fighting against poverty and disadvantage in Glasgow.
