Do have a few hours to spare on a Tuesday and would like to help a Young Carer have fun after school?
This September YCP Kingston will be offering an After School Drop In at the Moor Lane Centre in Chessington. This will be for all young people registered with Kingston YCP aged 9-11 and we are looking for 2 volunteers to help out. Interested? See role description below
People volunteer with us for a number of reasons, but they all have one thing in common: by giving their time they are helping to improve the lives of carers in Kingston. A carer is someone who is providing support, unpaid, to a friend or relative who has a disability, long term illness, mental health problem or substance misuse issue.
How can I help?
We are currently recruiting volunteers for a variety of roles supporting both our young carers (aged 5 -18) and adult carers (18+).
