Volunteers with empathy towards refugee and migrant families would be most suitable. In addition volunteers need to be extremely reliable, have good initiative and be culturally sensitive.
Previous experience working with children is preferred. The ability to speak other languages is an added advantage.
Criminal background and reference checks are a prerequisite.
Time commitment:
The playgroups take place only during school terms. There are 3 playgroup sessions during the week, each session is from 9.30am to midday. Volunteers need to be available for at least 2 sessions each week.
