Current volunteering opportunities

Saturday Chelmsford Activity Club
Come join us on a Saturday afternoon welcoming families to the Saturday Activity Club, join the team as the children try out the trampoline and gymnastics with a qualified coach, encourage them to try out activities like badminton, indoor football, basketball, table tennis, ride on bikes and lots more.

Sunday Colchester Activity Club
Volunteering at our new Sunday activity club in Colchester is a fantastic way to get experience of directly working with children and families with SEND.

Families InFocus Head Office

We need help taking details from new families and logging them on our database. We also need help booking families a call with a Family Support Adviser, sending families information and resources, and booking families onto one of our clinics. We have a great team environment and we can provide all the necessary training.

If you are interested in any of our volunteering opportunities, please contact linsey@fifessex.org.uk for further details.
