Route1 Independent Visitor Volunteer
If you are looking for a role supporting children and young people in Somerset, then our Route1 Independent Visitor Volunteer role may be for you!
Independent Visitors are volunteers who befriend and spend time with a child or young person who is in the care of the Local Authority. This role emphasises building a long-term relationship with one child or young person (visiting once or twice each month and sometimes more often) – undertaking a variety of activities together, depending on their interests and the age of the young person.
This voluntary role provides an excellent introduction to children’s services and to gaining knowledge and experience of working with vulnerable children.
Many professionals now employed as social workers, educators and employees in other children’s services commenced their careers as volunteers with this service.
We would like people to apply through our dedicated volunteer site – for this role the link is Route1 Independent Visitor (available across Somerset) | Somerset Council Volunteering
