Short Breaks Community Volunteer
Established in 2000, Caudwell Children is a national charity which works to transform the lives of disabled children and their families, enabling them to challenge the barriers they face throughout childhood by providing practical and emotional support.
The charity is going through an exciting period of growth having recently opened a new state-of-the-art facility for multi-disciplinary therapy programmes for childhood disability and research of neurodevelopmental conditions, including autism, within the grounds of Keele University.
Our short break activity sessions enable disabled children to access fun, inspirational and challenging leisure activities that build life skills and promote independence whilst providing carers with vital short break respite. With our support, disabled children and young people get to explore their interests, talents and develop vital life skills. Together we plan a range of fun and challenging learning activities that meet individual needs. Activities can lead to ASDAN accreditation. Short break activities build future hopes and aspirations and provide children with the confidence to achieve their full potential.
This role will include:
- Making contact with parent groups, schools and community venues in an area within Staffordshire and building positive relationships
- Arranging to go and speak to these groups about the short breaks that we offer.
- Keeping in regular contact with groups/schools etc to raise awareness and make sure people always know what our up-to-date offer is so that more children and families will benefit from our short breaks.
