Recruiting Organization: The Separated Child Foundation
We are looking for new volunteers to help us expand our existing packing project, creating packs for separated children and young people who arrive in the UK with nothing. Volunteering with us will give you a great sense of fulfilment and will offer you the chance to use your skills in a friendly environment, whilst making a significant difference to the lives of separated children!
KEY INFORMATION ABOUT THE ROLE
Time commitment: Ideally one session every 4-6 weeks to give a sense of engagement and community and to help with team-building, and to ensure the continued delivery of our services.
Location: The Big Yellow Self Storage warehouse near the North Circular Road, London, NW2 7JP. Free parking is available and several buses stop nearby.
Role description: Duties are largely repetitive tasks and include; assembling arrival/sleep packs and preparing the items that go in them e.g. filling lavender pouches, folding T-shirts, filling wash bags etc. Other tasks can include processing incoming goods, replenishing stock, cleaning and sweeping, and removing rubbish and recycling. Task preferences can usually be accommodated.
Health and safety: Each session is managed by a Pack Leader and there is a qualified First-Aider present at all times. All volunteers must complete a volunteer registration form and read and comply with our policies for safeguarding and child protection and health and safety. A young person consent and health form must be filled in by the parent or carer for any volunteers under the age of 18.
Expenses: Volunteers play a vital role in the delivery of our services. It is important to us that volunteering with us is accessible to all, and that volunteers are not out-of-pocket as a result of expenses they incur when giving their time. We will therefore reimburse reasonable out-of-pocket expenses such as travel, if requested
